American Dreams: A Novel

'“A funny, stylistically innovative novel that includes everything a popular novel should have: romance, sex, adultery, crime, religion, sickness, death, and even Texas.” —Publisher’s Weekly   “The humorous turn of phrase is Bruce Price’s most powerful weapon in American Dreams. His innovative turns of phrase prove as disturbing as they are entertaining. . . . There is a love of language evident on every page. Sentences are meant to be read over and over as you roll the words around and smile at the visual images that arise from the typeset page.” —Bloomsbury Review   “Here is a book so stuffed with vivid characters that it requires, by way of prologue, a listing of dramatic personae (titled ‘Chapter Zero’). If you don’t get around to reading this one, let me leave you with one of Price’s more amusing—and disturbing—thoughts: ‘Nothing dwindles so fast as love. Ditto happiness, fame, skill, money, and whatever time you’ve got left. Basically, nothing’s all that secure. Here today, gone by late afternoon. Sometimes you get one hour service.’” —Philadelphia Inquirer'
