    Review quote
    Praise for "Go The F**k To Sleep" "Total genius." --Jonathan Lethem, author of "Motherless Brooklyn," father of two "A children's book for grown-ups! I really did laugh out loud--hilarious!" --David Byrne, musician, father of one Praise for "The End of the Jews" "A beautiful, funny, heartbreaking book that manages to take on art, love, identity, class anxiety, being Jewish, and wishing you were black. Very few writers could have attempted all this without farcical results. Adam Mansbach succeeds, brilliantly. The End of the Jews is an intense, painful, poignant book." "-The Boston Globe" "Smart and cynical." "-The New York Times" "Mansbach has made something new of the multigenerational Jewish epic; this is far more tough-minded reading than we are used to on the subject. I don't love Jews any less for it, and neither does Mansbach, but I do know us better for what we are. This is a heartfelt, truthful book." --Keith Gessen, author of "All the Sad Young Literary Men" Praise for "Angry Black White Boy" "The book's careening parable feels like a more multiculturally aware equivalent to the literary provocations of older cult author Chuck Palahniuk, with its wild plot hooks, credibly eccentric characters and trenchant apocalyptic comedy.... ingenious street-dance-slash-mime stylized movement [and] occasional recorded snippets mesh with the cast's rapping, human beatboxing, singing and keyboarding -- all cleverly driving the narrative forward rather than overpowering it." --"Variety" "Startling, subversive, and raucous, "Angry Black White Boy" is a novel about how we became who we are, and why that's not good enough." --Daniel Alarcon, author of "War by Candlelight" "With this brutal, hilarious, and tragic novel, Adam Mansbach proves once again he is one of the most ambitious, insightful, and daring writers of our generation." --Jeff
