"A wild spoof of absolutely everything: social pretenses, law enforcement, marriage, open marriage, racism, literature, television, science fiction, and sex. Dozens of plots perk along at an amazing pace . . . . raunchy, dirty, outrageous, rife with cliches — and often very funny." — People
"One of the most brilliant, most radical, and most subversive pieces of writing to emerge from America in recent years." — The New Statesman
