Remarkably well written... funny, moving, and constantly surprising... It is impossible not to care what happens to Eddie, Tanya his wife, and Abby, their adorable daughter... Perlman is echoing Auden’s cry, “We must love one another or die.
Time Out UK
Perlman moves deftly from the personal to the political, from intellectual debate to near farce to edgy tenderness. His novel gradually builds into a study of a whole generation, a sad, angry, disconcertingly funny reflection of the way we live now.
Times Literary Supplement
Few novels ever dare to fuse emotional and economic life with the passionate intelligence of this one.
Constructed like a catchy pop song... a quirky cautionary tale that feels like a wake-up call...
New York Times Book Review
A brilliant fictional commentary on the human consequences of economic rationalism. Verdict: Encore! Bravo! More please!
