Melville House News

“Almond’s book is a tremendous read, as all of his work is, but more than that, it’s an important one, and one that leaves you slightly queasy the next time you set your fantasy football roster.” —Pop Culture Beast, on Against Football

Gnarr! is an entertaining reflection on life, politics, and human nature by an original and creative individual…It’s a tribute to, and manifesto for, participatory democracy in the 21st century. And above all, it’s a call for us all to be nicer to each other.” —PopMatters, on Gnarr!

Or to put it another way, he shows us ourselves in soccer.” —The Millions, on Red or Dead
