Reviews

'Magnificent ... crammed with insanely creative gags' Guardian

'Outstanding. Combining his films' most urgent themes and recurring concerns in a format that supports the digressions and logic-loops he's so famous for, Charlie Kaufman may have out-Kaufmaned himself' The i

'A very strong debut novel, a long, anguished spill of a book, full of buried furies and nervy philosophical expeditions, constantly tossing off sparks of humour and imagination ... at once surreal and highly readable' LA Times

'Marked by a feverish genius. Antkind is Kaufman pushing himself to every formal and social limit, no holds barred, bleak and devastating, yet marvellous' LA Times Review of Books

'Magnificent, genius, enraging, mysterious, joyous, terrifying and, above all, hilarious! Antkind might contain the universe' Andrew Sean Greer, author of Less

'A full-throttled absurdist revolt against the constraints of the audience-tested mass entertainment, Antkind is unbridled Kaufman energy and wit coming up against the limits of the imagination itself: discursive, subversive, and genuinely funny' Joshua Ferris, author of Then We Came to the End

'To paraphrase Charlie Kaufman, it's like a brain factory in there! This is a whopper of a book, bursting with the driest of humour, the strangest of scenarios, and the most brilliant of observations. It is wholly original, maddening, and marvellous' Susan Orlean, author of The Library Book

'Each page is so stuffed with invention, audacity and hilarity, it feels like an act of defiance. Antkind is a fever dream you don't want to be shaken awake from, a thrill ride that veers down stranger and stranger alleys until you find yourself in a reality so kaleidoscopic you will question your own sanity. Or: the novel only Charlie Kaufman could pull off' Maria Semple, author of Where'd You Go, Bernadette
