People are talking about Alan DeNiro's forthcoming book TOTAL OBLIVION, MORE OR LESS


More specifically, writerly-type people are talking about my client Alan DeNiro's forthcoming debut novel Total Oblivion, More or Less.

I'm thrilled to share with you three outstanding quotes for Alan's book:
“A wonderfully weird, fun, touching, heartfelt and memorable novel. Imagine if Huck Finn had been living in post-apocalypse America, and Terry Pratchett had been promoted to God, with George Saunders as his avenging angel. Alan DeNiro has created a hilarious and terrifying dream world, but his real genius is that he's peopled it with characters we come to love."
Dan Chaon, author of Among the Missing and Await Your Reply

“In Total Oblivion, More or Less, Alan DeNiro lifts the modern family drama and sets it down in the middle of a wildly inventive post apocalyptic landscape. The insulated life of Middle America may be a thing of the past, but DeNiro finds a way to lead readers into a future full of humor, imagination, and hope.”
Hannah Tinti, author of The Good Thief

"Total Oblivion, More or Less is filled with weird sightings and wild doings – chock-a-block with adventure, suspense, and surprise. Apocalyptic family values, too! Recommended to all."
Karen Joy Fowler, author of The Jane Austen Book Club
