Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Suburban regular guy Earl Keese confronts the yawning pit of chaos in the persons of Harry and Ramona, a younger couple who have just moved into the only other house on their dead-end street. Literally overnight, Earl's painstakingly controlled world is turned upside down. Soon he is engaged in guerilla warfare with his new neighbors, who seem to threaten the very fabric of his carefully constructed reality.

Review:

"A wonderfully funny and mysterious book...it raises yet again the embarrassing question of why Thomas Berger isn't more generally recognized as one of the masters of contemporary fiction." New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Thomas Berger's humor makes the familiar the brunt of its jokes." Los Angeles Times

Review:

"A flawlessly crafted morality play constructed out of the most subtle minutiae of perception and expression...as if Henry James had written Waiting for Godot." The Nation

Review:

"Neighbors offers a version of reality skewed just enough to give paranoia a good name." Time

Review:

"There's no question that Neighbors is a suburban novel that can stand alongside such classics of the genre as John Updike's Rabbit Redux and Richard Yates' Revolutionary Road. Ultimately, though, Neighbors seems to transcend history and geography in a way that these solider, more earthbound novels don't." Tom Perrotta, NPR
