Item description for Superworse - The Novel: A Remix of Superbad: Stories and Pieces by Laurence Onge Ben Greenman...
The original hardcover Superbad from McSweeney's was a collection of two dozen pieces ranging from postmodern satire to more serious fiction. The lot of it has been remixed --- much like popular music --- and reprinted in trade paper. The result: a challenging novel with a clear set of themes and characters, tightly constructed and intricately interwoven. As Susan Minot writes, Greenman's mind is hard to pin down and can be likened to that of "a Russian short story writer, a slapstick gag writer, an art critic, a literary critic, a cultural commentator, a cowboy, a satirist, a scientist ... a surrealist, a nut and genius, a stand-up comedian, a child prodigy, a dreamer, and a poet."

Talent on loan from.... Jan 20, 2004
Greenman showcases his abilities as a writer in this selection of newer and older pieces. I hope a novel is forthcoming from this brilliant young author. Greenman transcends the finest writers of his generation with his humor and his irony as well as with his sympathetic exploration of human emotions.
