Reviews

"Amusing and poignant...[An] affecting chronicle, a flashback-filled text that evokes by turns the feel of a documentary film, a subtle poem, a melancholy novella and a farcical play." --The Wall Street Journal"Funny, touching, odd, and thank goodness, uncategorizable."--The Guardian (London)"Here is a memoir concerned with a painful death that frequently has you laughing out loud."--The Observer (London)"Rarely has the mortality of the gods been so poignantly brought home."--The Literary Review

"An extraordinary book."--Roger Ebert"A well-paced gathering of eccentrics that mirrors Kaufman and Hart and stirs the heartstrings."--Kirkus Reviews"A gifted writer."--The Sunday Times
