Brubaker is a terrific comics writer whose ability to capture characters is priceless. His best stuff is in the crime genre, but this painfully personal work is a great read for fans of any genre.

It is very hard to read. It came to me at the end of a

recommended for: Fans of good detective fiction
Rate this book
Clear rating
I recently read an interview with Lethem in which he said he jumps topics in each new novel to keep from being labeled. He cites this book as putting him in danger of being "that detective writer." It's easy to see why. This is a tight, deft story se ...more

I read this about ten years ago, and it was time to get reacquainted.

Big, winding, epic, intimate, funny, and sad all at once. Reading about Ignatius J. Reilly and his bloated (in more than one sense) escapades is hilarious on one end and incredibly

I'm in the midst of rereading the whole 60-issue series. I could recommend all of them, but start at the beginning.

Wow. I know Auster from his work on the films SMOKE and BLUE IN THE FACE, but these books blew me away.
