Reviews

"[Joe Dunthorne is] probably destined to be compared with Mark Haddon and Roddy Doyle."--The Miami Herald

"This absolutely winning debut novel isn't so much a coming-of-age tale as it is a reflection on what it means to be a certain age and of an uncertain mind."--Los Angeles Times

"A brilliant first novel by a young man of ferocious comic talent."--The Times (London)

"[Dunthorne's] precocious talent and cheerful fondness for the teenage male are showcased in Submarine. . . . Oliver's voice is funny and dead-on."--The New York Times Book Review

"Preternaturally wise, slightly devious and highly entertaining."--USA Today
