"Lethem is literature's ultimate fanboy...[His] earnestness is satisfying, but it's his vulnerability, his willingness to expose his own flaws, that endears...Lethem's words remind of us of our own rabid fandoms." --The New York Times Book Review

"Incisive, colorful, and insightful...beguiling." --Publishers Weekly

"Thoughtful and often sly...[A] standout collection." --Kirkus

"Lethem is one of our most perceptive cultural critics, conversant in both the high and low realms, his insights buffeted by his descriptive imagination." --The Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Lethem is, of course, a king of sentences . . . His talent is large." --The New York Times Book Review
