"Tell Me How This Ends Well is a mastery of verbal invention and rhetorical pyrotechnics, an imagination that shocks...and a gift for humor so dark we find ourselves dancing on the edge of the grave." — Jewish Journal
"Imaginative, intelligent." — Kirkus Reviews
". . .and the jokes, knowing and hilarious, fly fast and furious in the black comic manner of Bruce Wagner, Howard Jacobson, and Bruce Jay Friedman." — Publishers Weekly
