‚eoeThis immensely entertaining [book] inspired by his love and knowledge of America provides a welcome reminder of his gifts.‚e
‚eoeHe‚e(TM)s as craftily observant and intelligently witty as ever... illuminating stuff.‚e
‚eoe[A] surprisingly evocative meditation [that] showcases Mr. Gill's gifts as a writer of rude invective, hyperbolic description and splenetic asides. . . .†An idiosyncratic voice all his own.‚e
‚eoeThe fun lies in wondering which next innocuous comment will cause him to blow his top.‚e
-Richard B. Woodward
‚eoeWitty, well-written satire.‚e
‚eoeGill bristles with outrageous originality about cliched topics. . . . He balances droll bombast with surprising outbursts of admiration for the British way. . . . Gill's caustic ruminations often veer into over-the-top hyperbole, but these essays, brimming with incendiary certitude, also offer nuggets of truth.‚e
