Here's what you say about us...

Mark Sarvas is the founder and editor of the litblog The Elegant Variation. He lives in Los Angeles. This is his first novel.

A wonderfully original writer.
The Times

Funny and sad. A remarkable debut.
JOHN BANVILLE

At times blisteringly funny
- like the hapless anti-hero himself.
Guardian

As witty, erudite, and outrageous as Waugh, with a flawed hero worthy of Roth. A marvellous, enviable debut.
ANDREW SEAN GREER

Beautiful and heartfelt . . . the
narrative is constantly inventive, messing with chronology, giving Harry depth
even when he's acting like a Class A schmuck.
Word Magazine

Fun, fast, and heartfelt.
JOSHUA FERRIS

It makes for fine tragicomedy, and Savras excels at poignant slapstick, putting Harry through humiliating hoops while ensuring that his bright but bumbling hero remains sympathetic.
