Wallace is nothing if not audacious. Real-life heroes, villains, historical figures, sports legends, television personalitieseven dinosaursappear in these stories alongside his fictitious characters, who themselves run the gamut from banal to psychotic When Wallace is at his best he is undoubtedly among the very best" (New York Times).
