Praise for Amnesia Moon…
"An intriguing and accomplished novel: funny, inventive, and ultimately cheering."--The Washington Post
"An author to be reckoned with . . .A social critic, a sardonic satirist like the Walker Percy of Love in the Ruins. But with Amnesia Moon, Lethem slips out of the shadow of his predecessors to deliver a droll, downbeat vision that is both original and persuasive."--Newsweek
"In Amnesia Moon you find yourself in a slippery, crazy, and frightening dream, and you do not want to wake up."--MC 900 Foot Jesus
