A real comic gift. An identifiable world vision composed of considerable sadness, hilarity, compassion, terror, and sexual longing.” New York Times Book Review

Yourgrau writes like a modern-day Morpheus with a rapier wit.” Entertainment Weekly

Yourgrau deserves to be read and reread, preferably at bedtime. This man’s imagination evokes the Victorian hallucinations of Lewis Carroll. Hilarious, frightening, sometimes bawdy.” Boston Pheonix

I can never remember my dreams, so Mr. Yourgrau’s stories are a pretty good substitute.” David Byrne

Reading Barry Yougrau is addictive, like putting peanuts in your nose and they turn into spaceships or something.” Roy Blount Jr.

Barry Yourgrau manages to articulate your most bugged out daydreams.” Adam Horovitz of the Beastie Boys
