Brewster North witnesses his mother's madness but misses her suicide; searches frantically for enlightenment in the Poconos and zipless sex in India; suffers family ennui in Rhode Island and a nervous breakdown in Amsterdam. And as Gray narrates his hero's freefall, he confirms his stature as one of our funniest, most eccentric, and engaging storytellers.
-- The New York Times Book Review
"Beautifully written, with all the visually organic wit of Gray's best monologue writing, as well as...emotional power [and] loopy nobility." -- Newsday
"An intimate, casual voice, capable of discussing anything from pornographic films to Chekhov's 'Sea Gull,' from acid trips to family holidays, with lightly ironic candor. One finishes the book impressed by how readily Gray's narrative voice transfers to the page."
