The Enthusiast (Harper) “As impossible to categorize as it is to put down... one of those rare, one-of-a-kind novels that defies description even as it moves readers to yank strangers off of buses to read them passages. Giants like Stanley Elkin, Tobias Wolff, George Saunders and J.D. Salinger come to mind. But THE ENTHUSIAST occupies a smart, weirdly fascinating, sometimes laugh-out-loud, ever soulful universe all its own. Already a journalist of legend, Charlie Haas more than proves his chops with fiction...as close to perfect as any first novel should ever be allowed to be. I really loved this book.” — Jerry Stahl “I am having the most wonderful day, lying on the couch and reading Charlie Haas's brilliant book. It is wonderfully written, charming, wise, sometimes funny, always real. Henry is a perfect narrator, and the book reads like a dream.” — Anne Lamott “I loved this novel from start to finish. It’s always funny and often profound... Again and again there are single lines that are both hilarious and saddening, that are alive both on the surface of the novel and in the depths of experience. It’s a triumph, it’s unique, and no one else would have even thought to write it.” — Greil Marcus (booksense)
