Review quote

A writer of virtuostic talents who can seemingly do anything NEW YORK TIMES Wallace is a superb comedian of culture ... his exuberance and intellectual impishness are a delight James Woods, GUARDIAN He induces the kind of laughter which, when read in bed with a sleeping partner, wakes said sleeping partner up ... He's damn good Nicholas Lezard, GUARDIAN One of the best books about addiction and recovery to appear in recent memory. SUNDAY TIMES
