Reviews

"He's the Steinbeck of suburbia." --Time

"A finely wrought novel." --Jerry Eberle, Booklist

"Perrotta is that rare combination: a satirist with heart....Those who haven't curled up on the couch with this writer's books are missing a very great pleasure." --Seattle Times

"Tom Perrotta is a truth-telling, unshowy chronicler of modern-day America." --The New York Times Book Review

"Ruefully humorous and tenderly understanding of human folly: the most mature, accomplished work yet from this deservedly bestselling author." --Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

"Rife with Perrotta's subtle and satiric humor." --Publishers Weekly
