Praise for The Book of Harold

"A lively and beautifully crafted novel about the anguish of belief."--Kirkus

"I love every word that Owen Egerton writes or utters and The Book of Harold bumps my admiration up to a new level. It takes a brave author to attempt satire these days. But it takes Owen Egerton to make it the wise, hilarious, finely-observed, and, ultimately, compassionate ring-tailed delight that The Book of Harold is." --Sarah Bird, author of The Gap Year

"Only Owen Egerton can create a new religion around a former computer salesman and make you want to up and take a pilgrimage to Austin with the rest of the Haroldians. Egerton has the gift of walking that fine line between hilarity and heart with grace. Follow." --Elizabeth Crane, author of All This Heavenly Glory

"An engaging exploration of everything ridiculous, horrible, and beautiful that humanity has ever been given or invented about religion, Egerton's first novelis poignant and entertaining not just for those familiar with the New Testament but for anyone who is familiar with the American lifestyle."--The Hipster Book Club
Praise for Owen Egerton

"Encapsulated in both novel and short-story form, his biting wit and spin on the world make for intelligent humor and foreshadow a long career in the written, spoken, and comedic worlds." --The Austin Chronicle
