Super Sad True Love Story (Paperback)
August 2010 Indie Next List
“This Herculean burst of a novel is charged with a furious energy, a restless insanity, an overall lust, and a love affair with language. Lenny Abramov is part Woody Allen protagonist, part dutiful dreamer, and wholly human. Eunice Park is the object of his affection, and she means business. Super Sad True Love Story is all that it promises to be, with super sharp satire, prophetic visions, plucky otters, and a lot more. It's a miracle this book doesn't explode in the reader's hands!”
— Zach Sampinos, Sam Weller's Books, Salt Lake City, UT
