Praise for Sellevision

"One of the most compelling and screamingly funny voices of the new century." --USA Today

"Acidic entertainment." --Entertainment Weekly

"Sellevision is good company for the beach or the plane. . . . The material sparkles." --Booklist

"Savvy, very entertaining. Is there a funnier combination than fast-moving soap opera and tawdry comedy? Underneath all the lunacy lies a grim truth: the thin line separating grotesque satire and everyday reality has been erased and will never exist again."--Bret Easton Ellis, author of American Psycho

"Sellevision is brilliant, subversive, and marvelously evil. In this stunningly fresh debut, Augusten Burroughs has redefined the edge. This is TV Guide for the morally bereft and spiritually bankrupt. Thank God. I feel queasy I didn't write it."--Suzanne Finnamore, author of Otherwise Engaged

"A painfully hilarious look at the dark side of consumer capitalism and the perils of third-tier celebrity. Days after reading it, I'm still buoyed by the invigorating malice I encountered on virtually every page. Augusten Burroughs has slam-dunked the zeitgeist."--Robert Rodi, author of Kept Boy
