Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Stephen Dobyns pulls off a neat misdirection in this brazenly titled comic crime novel. On its face, Is Fat Bob Dead Yet? is a frivolous romp through an underworld of solecism-spouting thieves and doltish enforcers. But…there’s surprising depth here, as Dobyns convenes an ensemble cast whose thwarted ambitions suffuse an antic storyline with an air of poignancy.” Washington Post
“Gold Dagger Award-finalist Dobyns’ genius for dark comedy makes this intricate crime novel a triumph that will appeal to Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen fans.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“A uproariously entertaining comic thriller that evokes Elmore Leonard and Donald E. Westlake but adds several layers of absurdity and a narrative voice that suggests metafiction meets a Greek chorus meets Jane Austen…Yes, it’s absurd; yes, it’s outrageous; but here’s the thing: somehow, amid all the craziness, there’s a beating heart, too.” Booklist (starred review)
