Review quote

Praise for "Spaceman Blues": "For fans of: the surreal odyssey of Ralph Ellison's "Invisible Man"; "Plan 9 from Outer Space,.".. For all its colorful characters and gonzo thrills, Slattery's debut is first and foremost a moving portrait of Wendell's griefs." "--Entertainment Weekly "(Grade: A-) "Slattery's debut is a kaleidoscopic celebration of the immigrant experience. Pynchon crossed with Steinbeck, painted by Dali: impossible to summarize, swinging from the surreal to the hyper-real, a brilliantly handled, tumultuous yarn." "--Kirkus Reviews ""Early reviews of "Spaceman Blues "threw around the names of Pynchon, Doctorow, and Dick as stylistic touchstones. But Slattery should really be considered alongside NYC homeboys like Lethem and Shteyngart, the former for his loving tweaks of vintage pulp, the latter for his sharp immigrant comedy." "--The Village Voice"
