The debut of the freshest voice in Jewish Literature since Phillip Roth arrived on the scene... youthful, energetic, wholly original.
- AM Homes
A scathing theological rant, a funny, oddly moving coming-of-age memoir, and an irreverent meditation on family, marriage, and cultural identity... I loved it.
- Tom Perrotta
Auslander writes like some contemporary comedic Jeremiah, thundering warnings of disaster and retribution. What makes him so terrifyingly funny is that he isn't joking.
- Howard Jacobson, winner of the Man Booker Prize
An extraordinary collection, which has an energy, a precision and a deep black humour I haven't seen in a long time... It's like drinking 14 shots of vodka.
- The Guardian
...a poet laureate may be in the making... there is little fear in this generation of American Jews, and there is none in Auslander's writing.
- LA Times Sunday Book Review
Hilarious, curious, possibly scandalous, keenly observed, and bleeding fresh.
- Augusten Burroughs
Funny, fierce and subversively heartfelt.... with his middle finger pointed at the heavens and a hand held over his heart, Auslander gives us Foreskin's Lament.
- NY Times Book Review
Dark and hilarious.
- New York Magazine
Even at his most rebellious, Portnoy-era Roth couldn't hold a candle to Shalom Auslander... Beneath the extremely funny shtick is one ferociously angry book.
- Entertainment Weekly
Wonderful, twisted, transgressive, heartbreaking, true, and hugely funny.
- A. L. Kennedy
Blends tragedy, comedy and satire in the mold of Samuel Beckett and Franz Kafka.
– Wall Street Journal
He's a black comic who's alloyed the manic existential shtick of Lenny Bruce with the gallows humor... a virtuoso humorist, and a brave one.
