Golk: A Novel

'“An original: sharp, funny, intelligent, rare . . . Working in a clean, oblique style reminiscent of Nathanael West, Mr. Stern has written in Golk a first-rate comic novel, a piece of fiction that is at once about and loaded with that kind of recognition that junkies call the flash.” —Joan Didion “Golk is fantastic, funny, bitter, intelligent without weariness. Best of all Golk is pure—that is to say necessary. Without hokum.” —Saul Bellow “A mighty good book, altogether alive, full of beans and none of them spilled.” —Flannery O’Connor “What I like about Mr. Stern’s fantasy is that it has been conceived and written with so much gaiety. Far from a political melodrama, it reminds me of a René Clair movie, and even the surrealist touches needed to bring out the power and pretense of the television industry are funny rather than symbolically grim.” —Alfred Kazin '
