"A delight ... a Day-Glo Pale Fire, and maybe the best pure comic novel of the year." -- The Believer, citing The Cardboard Universe as a finalist for The Believer Book Awards "Ingenious...In the vein of John Kennedy Toole, Swift, and Twain, it's a tall tale that touches on all manner of topics, from bizarre clothing to punk rock to insomnia...packed with literary allusion and commentary, along with splashes of mystery...a brilliant, deliriously wordy stab at reimagining and recasting fiction." -- Boston Globe "[A] pulp Pale Fire...hilarious...It's deranged metafiction at its most entertaining. -- Details "A Dickian feat of science-meta-fiction ... plenty of devastating laughs ... tragically funny and funnily tragic." -- The Wire (Portsmouth, NH) "Must reading for [Philip K.] Dick fans and anyone who enjoys a little irreverent fun at the expense of a literary world." -- Booklist "Miller's brilliant, hilarious The Cardboard Universe must be read immediately. Sentence by sentence, Miller proves himself a top-notch comedian, a master of invention, and a writer with a big heart." -- Deb Olin Unferth "The funniest novel I've read in years. Smart, clever, and utterly original...an instant classic that belongs on the same shelf as Catch-22, Portnoy's Complaint, and A Confederacy of Dunces...[with] mindblowing plot twists worthy of Philip K. Dick himself, merciless mockery of everything ridiculous about the literary life." -- Mark Jude Poirier, author of Goats and Modern Ranch Living, screenwriter of Smart People "Chris Miller's powers of invention seem infinite...one of the most original books I've read in a long time." -- Lynne Sharon Schwartz
