About this title

Synopsis:

"Wilcox ... is a precocious master of old-fashioned farce, and this novel ... is a wonderfully funny explosion of comedy that is solidly based, as a good comic novel must be, on a serious understanding of life". -- The New Yorker.

From the Publisher:

This title is enjoying a renewed interest after the New Yorker article on the author. "Mr. Wilcox has real comic genius. He is a writer to make us all feel hopeful," wrote Anne Tyler in the New York Times Book Review.

"About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
