Reviews

"Back when Philip K. Dick asked, 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?' who could have imagined that George Saunders would answer?... Saunders's caustic wit, imaginative flair, and the ping-pong speed of his dialogue are on full display here." -- Los Angeles Times

"Leaves you startled and hushed, grateful to be alive and to be reading." -- Associated Press

"Insanely inventive... Stunningly effective... The surreal Saunders magic is working." -- New York Times Book Review

"Ludicrously funny and outrageously prescient... Saunders's finest gift... is to construct a story of absurdist satire, then locate within it a moment of searing humanity." -- The Boston Globe

"Pynchon-meets-Wonder Showzen." -- Entertainment Weekly
