Summary

"Extravagantly entertaining . . . One of the great pleasures of this novel is how confidently [Paul Murray] addresses such disparate topics as quantum physics, video games, early-20th-century mysticism, celebrity infatuation, drug dealing, Irish folklore and pornography." Dan Kois ,The New York Times Book Review "Murray's humor and inventiveness never flag . . .Skippy Dies leaves you feeling hopeful and hungry for life."Entertainment Weekly (Grade: A) "Dazzling . . . It's theMoby-Dick of Irish prep schools . . . In short, it's like childhood. In shorter, like life." Jess Walter, The Washington Post Book World (a pick for Best Fiction of 2010) "Funny, tragic, thoroughly captivating . . . One of the most enjoyable books of the year." Michael Berry,San Francisco Chronicle "Skippy is so desperately, painfully alive that you hope the mere act of reading about him will save him . . . A virtuosic display you'd expect from a writer with the confidence to kill off his title characterin the title ." Radhika Jones ,Time
