About the Author
Praise For I Just Want My Pants Back…
“This laugh-out-loud debut reminds us what it’s like to be young, broke, lost, and randy—in the best way. Rosen’s is a stand-out new voice, and he sings beautifully throughout.”
—David Lipsky, author of Absolutely American
“David J. Rosen has written a hilarious, smart, sexy, great, completely original debut novel. It’s as if Bright Lights, Big City had been given a polish by a young Woody Allen.”
—Darin Strauss, author of Chang and Eng and The Real McCoy
“Jason Strider is the most well-adjusted screw-up to come down the pike in a while . . . I Just Want My Pants Back is a laugh-out-loud funny, ultimately poignant look at one very nice guy’s awakening to adulthood.”
—Kate Christensen, author of In the Drink and The Epicure’s Lament
"I Just Want My Pants Back" is a novel that deserves all the praise it's going to get—Jason is a funny character, funny ha-ha and funny sad, but the most important thing: I’d follow him anywhere."
—Ain't It Cool News
“Rosen breathes new life into the genre with his incredible eye for comedic detail.”
—Kirkus Reviews; Selected, Promising Debuts From Important New Voices
