"In a wry domestic tone nicely akin to Tom Perotta's, Mr. Tropper . . .introduces a darkly entertaining bunch of dysfunctional relatives. . . . This author's strong suit is wisecracks, the more irreverent the better."--Janet Maslin, "The New York Times"
"Often sidesplitting, mostly heartbreaking.... [Tropper's] a more sincere, insightful version of Nick Hornby, that other master of male psyche."--"USA Today"
"Hilarious and often heartbreaking... a novel that charms by allowing for messes, loose ends and the reality that there's only one sure ending for everyone."--"The Los Angeles Times"
"[A] magnificently funny family saga.... Read and weep with laughter. Grade: A"--"Entertainment Weekly"

"A beautifully crafted book of enormous heart . . . utterly magnificent."--Augusten Burroughs on "The Book of Joe"
