Product Description

Review

`Yanofsky cuts and pastes these eccentric lives together in a charming and detached way. He never lets the zaniness get too cute or sentimental, not an easy task with so many maniacs on board. As Jacob says, ``everyone I know is crazy. Absolutely nuts. ... I don't believe they are out to get me any more. I just believe they are out to confuse me.'' '

(The Globe & Mail)

Review

`I quite like Jacob's Ladder. It's smart, it's extremely observant. It throbs with the excessive and obsessive qualities of its journal-entry design.... What I like most about this novel is its seriousness, and its determination to make a life without epiphanies a literary subject worthy of your and my dedication.... This book wants to add to the sum of what's important and make known about life what isn't [known] yet. And in many, many ways it does so.'

(Richard Ford)
