A pure joy to read...Lipsyte's sentences are so dizzyingly brilliant, so sharp and energetic...A few hours spent offline with Lipsyte is a worthwhile investment
Nicole Flattery, Guardian
The book has a scattergun brilliance, endlessly throwing up finely cut phrases and manic riffs
Phil Baker, Sunday Times
Wonderfully moving and beautifully musical, Lipsyte has penned a dastardly hysterical take on modern day rhetoric and the eternal ridiculousness of it all. More than a 'must read'
Paul Beatty, author of the Man Booker Prize-winning, The Sellout

The Fun Parts
A boy eats his way to self-discovery while another must battle the reality-brandishing monster preying on his fantasy realm. Meanwhile, an aerobics instructor, the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, makes the most shocking leap imaginable to save her soul.
Bold, hilarious and darkly affecting, Lipsyte’s stories combine the tragicomic dazzle of his beloved novels and the compressed vitality of his classic debut collection. The Fun Parts is Lipsyte at his best – an exploration of new voices and vistas from a writer Time magazine has said ‘everyone should read’.
