“Zupp’s bleak vision of the future is, unfortunately, all too convincing, and his darkly comic prose offers perhaps the best means of facing it as a possibility. This is a book for those who love the work of Kurt Vonnegut, early Thomas Pynchon, and David Foster Wallace.”- Charlie Gere, Lancaster University

“A freewheelingly scabrous, energetic and darkly funny tale, pinpricked with pathos and sympathy, all concealing a strange sort of seriousness. Probably the strangest and most scatologically unbridled book you’ll read this year, and that’s a recommendation.”- George Green, author of Hound and Hawk

“Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas meets Dr. Strangelove; Zupp is to subversive fictional literature as Salvador Dali is to art in this future-real dissection of a world with characters as secular and loveless as our own. Martha is written with intelligence, wit, and a delightful sprinkling of absurdity for good measure.”- K.T. Browne, author of The Strangled Hubris.
