Reviews

"This literary 'topping from the bottom' is the funniest, smartest, most heartbreaking yet powerful book I've read in a long time." --John Waters

"Humiliation runs like a rash over the body of all of Wayne Koestenbaum's work; here, he directly addresses the feeling, and the result is one of my favorite recent books: psychologically astute, verbally pyrotechnic, bottomlessly provocative, surprisingly funny, and immensely sad. An extraordinary meditation on nothing less than--I don't know how else to say it--the human condition." --David Shields, author of Reality Hunger
