it was amazing
Read in June, 2000

Leyner is a literary hero of mine. It seems like he can often accomplish in one sentence what it takes most writers to say in a few paragraphs. His writing is extremely smart, funny, and satirical--and I admit, I had to read this twice before I even began to understand it. He is very much part of the MTV, self absorbed, masculine-hyped, me generation, but somehow manages to pull it off with humor and derision. LOVE this quirky, zany novel, and wish he would write more fiction!
