“Tao Lin writes from moods that less radical writers would let pass—from laziness, from vacancy, from boredom. And it turns out that his report from these places is moving and necessary, not to mention frequently hilarious.” – Miranda July, author of No One Belongs Here More Than You
“Tao Lin is the most distinctive young writer I've come upon in a long time: the most intrepid, the funniest, the strangest. He is completely unlike anyone else.” – Brian Morton, author of Starting Out in the Evening
Confused yet intelligent animals attempt to interact with confused yet intelligent humans, resulting in the death of Elijah Wood, Salman Rushdie, and Wong Kar-Wai; the destruction of a Domino's Pizza delivery car in Orlando; and a vegan dinner at a sushi restaurant in Manhattan attended by a dolphin, a bear, a moose, an alien, three humans, and the President of the United States of America, who lectures on the arbitrary nature of consciousness, truth, and the universe before getting drunk and playing poker.
“Tao Lin's fiction will kick your ass and say thank you afterwards!” – Amy Fusselman, author of The Pharmacist's Mate

Amazing May 10, 2008
I bought this book because of the title. Little did I know that it would turn out to be the best book I've read in a very long time. I have a hard time considering it a piece of prose. It is pure poetry. Tao Lin is my new favorite writer.
So-So, more towards the positive side May 7, 2008
I enjoyed the sarcasm and dark humor in this book. However, it isn't the greatest book I've ever read. It felt like a strange dream of someone under the influence of some kind of substance. Fun read, but not very meaningful. I guess that is the point of existentialism. I did appreciate it though. Good book for when you are in-between intellectual works; you can read it, take the words at face-value, and still be impacted.

Few writers paint with a brushstroke that is as thoughtful and hilarious as Tao Lin.
