Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fiction. Part of Dalkey Archive's American Literature Series. "We are now nearing the end of the millenium, and here comes this bigger-than-life novel once more, with the hope that it will find the readership now that has escaped it for more than fifteen years" (John O'Brie, from the Preface). "It is as if James Joyce, for his sins, had been forced to grow up in Queens; as if Sam Beckett had been mugged by Godot in a Flushing confort station; as if Sid Caesar played the part of Moby Dick in a Roman Polanski movie shot underwater in Long Island City... Mr. Mano is Tom Wolfe and Hunter S. Thompson and Henderson the Rain King" (John Leonard, New York Times). Paginated backwards.
