The Dick Gibson Show

'“[Elkin is] a hero of American letters, a great artist, a stylist without peer.” —Tim O'Brien“Contains enough comic material for a dozen nightclub acts . . . A brilliant approximation of what it is like to live with one’s eyes and ears constantly open.” —Time “It's raw energy that Elkin loves. . . . He's Ahab smashing through the mask with jokes.” —John Gardner “Among the most powerful and funny American novels I know . . . It’s worth noting how fully this novel, which is set mostly in the two decades after World War II, anticipates the daily purge that is the internet.” —Dwight Garner, The New York Times  '
