"Very funny indeed," The New York Times.
"An appealingly extravagant wit," The Los Angeles Times.
"Sheer intellectual bliss," The Los Angeles Herald-Examiner.
"A witty, highly literate, and mind-boggling autobiography," The Chattanooga Times.
"An eloquent discourse...A passionate and erudite critique of American culture," Library Journal.
"One manís time capsule, lovingly gathered and carefully packed and then deliberately dropped from a great height, shattering on impact into brilliant smithereens. A tender, funny, language-drunk mix of autobiography, confession, commonplace book, humanist battlecry, itís completely wonderful," Michael Herr, author of Dispatches.
