"A nutty, likable romp [that] quickly takes on a deeper resonance that is certain to please readers . . . quite moving."--Washington Post
"[Jim Lehrer's] sly, winsome, and crafty stories always celebrate the ordinary, confront some elemental issue of being human . . . and give us characters whose essential decency stays with the reader. . . . Eureka does all of those things. In fact, it may be Lehrer's best novel yet."--Booklist, starred review "Calamity gives way to poignancy in this consistently fun story buoyed by an endearing protagonist readers will cheer for."--Publishers Weekly "Crisply executed . . . Irony seldom drips with such humor and grace."--Texas Monthly
