“With 2030 Mr. Brooks has made the nervy move of transposing his worrywart sensibility from film to book. Two things are immediately apparent about his debut novel: that it’s as purposeful as it is funny, and that Mr. Brooks has immersed himself deeply in its creation.”--New York Times
"The novel is a revelation, painting a caustic, unsettling and only occasionally comic portrait of a country plumb down on its luck."--Los Angeles Times
"Albert Brooks is a keen and critical social observer...His first novel is an inspired work of social science fiction, thoughtful and ambitiously conceived, both serious and seriously funny."--Boston Globe
"An intriguing vision of America’s future."--Library Journal
"Required reading!"--New York Post
“As a comedian and filmmaker, the very gifted Albert Brooks has specialized for more than 30 years in cooking up quandaries with no ready solution except humiliation. His often ingenious first novel is no exception.”--New York Times Book Review
