"" Simply one of the two or three funniest works in American fiction." -- "Chicago Sun-Times
"" Touching as well as hilariously lewd.... Roth is vibrantly talented...as marvelous a mimic and fantasist as has been produced by the most verbal group in human history." -- Alfred Kazin, "New York Review of Books"
