Reviews
"The funniest serious novel I have read since--well, maybe since Portnoy's Complaint." --The New York Times Book Review

"There is a big, wry heart beating at the center of Russo's fiction." --The New Yorker

"[Russo] skewers academic pretensions and infighting with mad abandon...in a clear and muscular prose that is a pleasaure to read....I had to stop often to guffaw, gasp, wheeze, and wipe away my tears." --Chicago Sun-Times

"Bursting with humor and insight." --USA Today
