Reviews

"Mr. Gates has created one of recent literature's most memorable anti-heroes, and...established himself as a novelist of the very first order." --The New York Times

"A brilliant novel. Full of dark truths and biting humor, Jernigan will be read for a long time." --Frederick Exley

"[Has a] jumpy, boozy, post-modern ironic belligerence.... This is a profoundly sorrowful book, one that lingers, unbidden, in the heart." --The New York Times Book Review

"In the best tradition of tragic literature, Jernigan is cathartic and stimulating.... High moral art." --The Seattle Times

"A sizzler of a novel." --Joseph Heller

"Brilliantly handled.... At once harrowing and hilarious, an artful chronicling of one man's free-fall into an exhilarating, devouring nihilism." --San Francisco Chronicle
