"This is a classic American tale on hallucinogens. It was the first novel I read by Paul Auster and possibly my favorite."
"There are too many protagonists to count in this story but it never loses its way or feels spread thin. It’s tragic, hilarious, inspiring and important. I stole the name of my solo record “Honey From the Icebox” from it’s pages too."
John Kennedy Toole
"It’s been years since I read it but I remember laughing out loud and marveling at the brilliant lunacy of Ignatius J. Reilly."
"When I finished this novel I cried and called my mother."
"Scenes from this novel still pop into my head years after reading it. It’s such a powerful dream I feel like I lived it."
