From the Publisher:

Advance praise for Wrong Information Is Being Given Out At Princeton:

"Silly, funny, bilious, and wise. Here is a novel to savor as you would a well-poured stout." --The Sunday Telegraph

"At the age of seventy-two, he's still as electric as the city he describes." --Mail on Sunday

"It is wonderful to report that the author of The Ginger Man, now in his seventies, is writing as vigorously as ever. In his new book, the tumbling prose that swoops from pedantry to poetry, fracturing grammar but always making perfect sense, is at the service of a fable that is both tragic and romantic. When it comes to being caught in the snares of sex, poverty, or high society, no one can ferment the language of frustration better than Donleavy." --The Sunday Telegraph

"Donleavy has produced another triumph." --Evening Herald
