Completely absurd and true. As funny as it is scarily reflective of our times -- Tommy Orange Utterly hysterical. This book gets it exactly right - the tone, the form, the kind of naive narrative that implies that all this is perfectly normal. I laughed out loud so frequently I was amazed, because I'm not that easy to make laugh out loud. Bravo -- Eric Idle A shattering, hilarious, spellbinding siren call from the deck of one of our greatest storytellers and prophets -- Eve Ensler A funny, macabre, and inspired modern fable about a boat and its captain. If there is any further metaphor involved, though, it is totally lost on me -- BJ Novak Egger's caricature is sharply observed. * The Spectator * engaging, disturbing and sometimes genuinely funny . . . testament to his skill as a writer. * The Guardian *
