Reviews

"Double or Nothing is fashioned with enough genuine literary skill to place it among the great experimental novels of all time."--Library Journal
"Invention of this quality ranks the book among the fictional masterpieces of our age..."--Richard Kostelanetz, author of The End of Intelligent Writing and The Old Fictions & the New

"Federman takes the novel to the point of obsessive, ultimate reflexiveness--and against all the odds of logic in fiction, Double or Nothing works like a charm...Somehow, in this furious and comic scheme, every distraction is an enrichment, and the processes of choice--played with infinite fancifulness upon the page--are the lovely geometry of personal assertion. Typography becomes typology; our hero becomes a citizen."

--Marcus Klein, author of After Alienation and Foreigners
