“..full of parti-colored thought and wit – a refreshing flash-back to the Existentialists and Absurdists of the fifties and sixties..”

“All he has to ease his solitude is fleas and thistles—and pathetic, often hilarious, self-delusion.”

“..absolutely scrumptiously funny.”

“..he has a clever way with words and an off-kilter approach to intelligent dialogue that makes this effort sparkle.”
