Reviews

"Sosnowski (Happy Doomsday) fuses philosophical pessimism with humor and makes bearable explorations of human extinction. In today's cultural crisis such singular vision is rare amid a literature churning with despair. Readers favoring Chuck Palahniuk, Ottessa Moshfegh, and Salingeresque dark absurdity will relish." --Library Journal (starred review)

"Along with the almost satirical rendering of the world, the lovely writing, and engaging plot, the characters of George and Pandora are brilliant--fascinating, tough characters who, through their own skills, are able to bend the world to meet their needs." --Booklist

"David Sosnowski's novels have all been funny, insightful, and utterly of the moment, and yet he accomplishes what the great nineteenth-century novelists strove for: he makes us understand that everyone around us--sullen teenagers, homeless guys, demented old women--everyone has a vivid interior life and a compelling story." --Mary Doria Russell, author of The Sparrow
