“[A] sure comic touch… smart and sweet… a tribute to the pleasures of friendship.”
—The New Yorker
“At the corner where a brisker Haruki Murakami meets a drier “30 Rock” [readers] would do well to seek out Filipacchi’s radiantly intelligent and very funny novel.”
—San Francisco Chronicle
“Amanda Filipacchi is the funniest novelist you’ve never heard of…. Few comic novelists get characters talking so naturally, and amusingly…. There is a high art in this kind of ungentle entertainment, and in ‘The Unfortunate Importance of Beauty’ Amanda Filipacchi proves she hasn’t lost her touch, not even a little.”
—The Boston Globe
“A surreal and utterly compelling triumph.”
“[A] farcical novel… riveting to read.”
—NY Times, T Magazine
“[A] zanily satirical, spot-on novel.”
—O, The Oprah Magazine
