What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Mr. Gates has created one of recent literature's most memorable anti-heroes, and...established himself as a novelist of the very first order." —The New York Times

"A brilliant novel. Full of dark truths and biting humor, Jernigan will be read for a long time." —Frederick Exley

"[Has a] jumpy, boozy, post-modern ironic belligerence.... This is a profoundly sorrowful book, one that lingers, unbidden, in the heart." —The New York Times Book Review

"In the best tradition of tragic literature, Jernigan is cathartic and stimulating.... High moral art." —The Seattle Times

"A sizzler of a novel." —Joseph Heller

"Brilliantly handled.... At once harrowing and hilarious, an artful chronicling of one man's free-fall into an exhilarating, devouring nihilism." —San Francisco Chronicle
