Editorial Reviews:
Review:
"If George Saunders's hyperkinetic dark-fantasist-satirist prose...is an acquired taste, it's a taste quickly acquired. This master of low-mimetic lunacy can make you laugh aloud even as you wince at his deadpan excess and the manic, compulsive syntax....Like the entrepreneurial zealots whom he satirizes, Saunders exploits his material with slight variants, improvising upon a formula of stream-of-consciousness black humor that sometimes, but not often, spills over into sheer comic-book silliness but occasionally...engages us unexpectedly."

Joyce Carol Oates, New York Review of Books, 06/29/2000

Review:
"[F]unny and dyspeptic....Appallingly bad behavior and awesome stupidity are presented with deadpan matter-of-factness in Saunders's work....Just when you're laughing hardest at one of Saunders's characters--people actually think this way!--along comes another who thinks the way you do, or at least shares some of your opinions."

Greg Varner, Washington Post Book World, 07/23/2000
