Reviews

PRAISE FOR COOLER HEADS

"Cooler Heads is a surprisingly delightful book given its heartbreaking subject. Tepper makes the dissolution of his hero's marriage, the loss of his job, and New York City's ongoing immolation of its own past all so entertaining that you may not notice the undertone of despair till after you've read the last page."

--Will Heinrich, author of The King's Evil and The Pearls

"Offering a pitiless dissection of a modern relationship, Tepper shows himself an expert at orchestrating scenes of domestic carnage. This plays out like a hipster Brooklyn version of Richard Yates's Revolutionary Road."

--Publisher's Weekly

PRAISE FOR JULIAN TEPPER

"Julian Tepper has written an autobiographical slice of late '90s/early '00s rock 'n' roll life with such ease that I recognized this world immediately, intimately."

--Lee Ranaldo, Sonic Youth, on Between the Records

"An engaging novel and an insightful take on just how easy it can be to slip from the upper class."--The New York Times, on Ark

"A darkly humorous novel."

--WNYC, on Balls
