Reviews and Samples

Since 1993

Got reservations? Bob does - about his life. And his wife has left him. And he's broke. Party!

"At the forefront of all the serious new fiction released this year."
- Midwest Book Review

"McKeon times these beats impeccably; he writes with a kinetic energy that propels Bob's darkest and funniest moments at the same pace, making for both a fully realized narrator and a compulsive read." - Kirkus Review

"This superb work of fiction peels back the layers of [Bob's] carefully guarded soul for readers to explore. It is a masterful examination of a young man struggling to balance chronic low self-esteem with a performer's perpetual need for approval." - Publishers Daily Reviews
