Reviews

`Deceptively light ... deadpan funny ... Saunders, as an American social and literary critic, may be shaping up as the Orwell of the millennium' * The Times * `Not since Twain has America produced a satirist this funny' * Zadie Smith * `Saunders is a warm and funny guide through familiar and foreign landscapes ... His job is to observe and be funny ... in a tone often reminiscent of Bill Bryson' * Observer * `Again and again, Saunders demonstrates that wacky, subversive, formally strange writing is not only contrary to our nation's capitalist spirit, it's the most natural and effective of responses to it. He makes the all-but-impossible look effortless. We're lucky to have him' * Jonathan Franzen, author of The Corrections *
