Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
"Mr. Saunders writes like the illegitimate offspring of Nathaniel West and Kurt Vonnegut, perhaps a distant relative of Mark Leyner and Steven Wright. . . . Mr. Saunders' satiric vision of America is dark, and demented; it is also ferocious and very funny".--"The New York Times".

Review:
"...a bizarre odyssey into the dark reaches of the author's febrile imagination, a world turned upside down and populated by weirdos and inadequates trying to get back on their feet....As with Gary Larson's drawings, George Saunders's humour is laced with a wonderfully offbeat brand of satire that is superb when it hits the target..."

Toby Harnden, Literary Review, 02/1996

Review:
"...the debut of an exciting new voice in fiction...Mr. Saunders...writes like the illegitimate offspring of [Nathanael] West and Kurt Vonnegut, perhaps a distant relative of Mark Leyner and Steven Wright. He's a savage satirist with a sentimental streak, who delineates, in these pages, the dark underbelly of the American dream: the losses, delusions, and terrors suffered by the lonely, the disenfranchised, the downtrodden, and the plain unlucky...Mr. Saunders' satiric vision of America is dark and demented; it's also ferocious and very funny."

Michiko Kakutani, New York Times, 02/02/1996
