Summary: "Here's whatIndecisiongives you: sustained social and intellectual comedy, possibly the last but certainly the funniest Superfluous Man in modern literature, drive-by satire plus detailed set-piece send-ups of Young Adult colgrads at work and play. The mockery is humane. The tale of Dwight Wilmerding is told with style and care. And there's a surprising ending. Benjamin Kunkel, welcome!" Norman Rush, author ofMatingandMortals "Very funny.The prose itself offers much pleasure. Kunkel would have given Stanley Elkin a run for his money in the clever metaphor department. Because he's young and uses big words, Kunkel may unfairly be compared to David Foster Wallace or Rick Moody, but unlike them he has succeeded in writing a novel that's clever without being self-conscious. Dwight's plot never plays second-fiddle to Benjamin Kunkel's intelligence. My advice? Read this one." Washington Post Book World "Kunkel manages to whip up a cerebral novel that doesn't feel overly, uh, cerebral.Funny." Village Voice "Do not fear Kunkel as a new Jay McInerney or Brett Easton Ellis. Neither of those writers is capable of the generosity and sweetness that dog Dwight. Neither are capable of writing so smartly funny.ReadIndecisionwith a smile on your face. The fate of Dwight Wilmerding is zany, surprising and strangely affecting." Cleveland Plain-Dealer "Sophisticated.[The] prose alone strongly hints at the depth of Kunkel's skills, which is to say, quite simply, he's for real." The San Francisco Chronicle "Kunkel's narrator has an appealingly rascally voice, and the author is expert at depicting highbrow buffooneryat an all-night Ecstasy party, flesh and philosophy commingle to hilarious effect.crisp prose." The New Yorker "Kunkel tackles serious modern concernscontinued poverty in the developing world, the pervasiveness of psychotropic drugswith dexterous linguistic chops and assured comic timing." Washington Post "Kunkel has succeeded in crafting a voice of singular originality." Entertainment Weekly "Original and enjoyable.The reader has no choice but to be swept up by this delightfully neurotic and unexpectedly original tale of quarter-life crisis-cum-adventure.At a time when many fictional works are increasingly serious and grim, a romp through Kunkel's enjoyable and often downright silly novel is a nice reprieve.Indecisionis a novel unlike any in recent memory, and in Dwight Wilmerding one discovers a genuine, fully-realized voice that echoes into the room long after the book has been set aside." Vail Daily "A very funny book.Lyrical and even tender.For a slim satire,Indecisionbrims with insight into the modern urban condition." Time Out New York "One of this year's best debut novels.Sell[s] a new kind of irony that Mr. Kunkel's contemporaries will appreciate.Dwight is already the most articulate first-person narrator you will read this fall.Brilliant." New York Sun "One could quote endlessly from this book, which is made of almost nothing but good lines.Dwight as a characters is silly and sometimes shrewd as well as likeable; as a narrator he's heaven."

ID: 231227

Benjamin Kunkel's brilliantly comic debut novel concerns one of the central maladies of our timea pathological indecision that turns abundance into an affliction and opportunity into a curse. Dwight B. Wilmerding is only twenty-eight, but he's having a midlife crisis. Of course, living a dissolute, dorm like existence in a tiny apartment and working in tech support at the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer are not especially conducive to wisdom. And a few sessions of psychoanalysis conducted by his sister have distinctly failed to help with his biggest problem: a chronic inability to make up his mind. Encouraged by one of his roommates to try an experimental pharmaceutical meant to banish indecision, Dwight jumps at the chance (not without some meditation on the hazards of jumping) and swallows the first fateful pill. And when all at once he is pfired from Pfizer and invited to a rendezvous in exotic Ecuador with the girl of his long-ago prep-school dreams, he finds himself on the brink of a new life. The troublewell, one of the troublesis that Dwight can't decide if the pills are working. Deep in the jungles of the Amazon, in the foreign country of a changed outlook, his would-be romantic escape becomes a hilarious journey into unbidden responsibility and unwelcome knowledge. How to affirm happiness without living in constant denial of the ways of the world? How to commit, and to what? At once funny and poignant, gentle and outrageous, finely intelligent and proudly silly, Indecision rings with a voice of great energy and originality, while its deeper inquiries reflect the concerns and style of a generation. "Here's what Indecision gives you: sustained social and intellectual comedy, possibly the last but certainly the funniest Superfluous Man in modern literature, drive-by satire, plus detailed set-piece send-ups of Young Adult colgrads at work and play. The mockery is humane. The tale of Dwight Wilmerding is told with style and care. And there's a surprising ending. Benjamin Kunkel, welcome!"
