Bathroom Monologue: Praise for Lindsay Cavanash’s New Novel

“…possessing a unique merit…”

“Cavanash’s novel is so funny you’ll almost laugh.”

“A sure bet to be nominated for many obscure awards, and to likewise win none.”

“Fearlessly apes the least appealing strands of [Hawthorne] and [West].”

“Seldom does fiction have such a sense of place….
I thought we’d all gotten over that.”

“…America’s only heir to J.D. Salinger, surely chaffing to be disowned.”

“One is almost disappointed she did receive warrant a fatwa.”

“Painfully funny, achingly entertaining, rigorously enthralling–
[C]avanash simultaneously captures what we go to novels for
and sucks the fun out of it.”

“Comes with a flashlight app.”


  1. Haha, that reminds me of the #badblurb hashtag game that Tony was doing so well at, earlier this week.

  2. Can you change the colours on the flashlight app, or is it only white?

  3. The only thing missing is a list of the authors who didn't recommend it...
