Reviews

  • engaging, disturbing and sometimes genuinely funny . . . testament to his skill as a writer.

    The Guardian
  • Egger's caricature is sharply observed.

    The Spectator
  • Utterly hysterical

    Eric Idle
  • A shattering, hilarious, spellbinding siren call from the deck of one of our greatest storytellers and prophets.

  • There is a peculiar kind of cathartic feeling that comes from desperate, worried laughter. This kept happening to me while reading this book. The Captain and the Glory is completely absurd and true. It is as funny as it is scarily reflective of our times and current president. Eggers has given us an essential American satire, a depiction of this administration that doesn't simply deny it as an abomination-which it is-but carries us through an illustration of a parallel imaginary world that delights and defames and is just so good and funny.

  • A funny, macabre, and inspired modern fable about a boat and its captain. If there is any further metaphor involved, though, it is totally lost on me

  • Utterly hysterical. This book gets it exactly right - the tone, the form, the kind of naive narrative that implies that all this is perfectly normal. I laughed out loud so frequently I was amazed, because I'm not that easy to make laugh out loud. Bravo

  • Completely absurd and true. As funny as it is scarily reflective of our times
