SAN FRANCISCO, CA: From Robert Mailer Anderson, the bestseller author of Boonville. The last patrons of Cafe Dante gather for their morning coffee during what may be the final days of civilization.

PRAISE FOR ROBERT MAILER ANDERSON
"...the funniest first novel by an American writer to come my way since John Kennedy Toole's A Confederacy of Dunces.”
- Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post
"Energetic, abrasive, very funny... Boonville delivers."
- New York Times Book Review
"Robert Mailer Anderson's a brilliant new voice - twitchy, corny, sly, cackling and sad, but most of all, racing with vitality and goosing you to keep up. Boonville is the creepy and hilarious coming-of-age story the territory deserves - not your parent's Vineland, but your own."
- Jonathan Lethem
“A great first novel...(Anderson) has a language and style all his own...bracingly fresh...uproarious."
- San Francisco Chronicle
"...the funniest (debut novel) since Philip Roth's Goodbye, Columbus...very, very funny...Anderson may be the WASP Lenny Bruce."
- Anderson Valley Advertiser
"A very sick man – and a very funny writer!"
- Carl Hiaasen
"A sardonic and beautifully imagined first novel...pages of well-tuned humor...distinguished by an exemplary eye for emotional detail."
- SF Weekly
“Milk-through-the-nose funny...Pynchon fans will immediately notice similarities not only with “Vineland,”which takes place in a similar setting and deals with similar themes as “Boonville" but also with “The Crying of Lot 49."
"Robert Mailer Anderson is a young writer of energy, style, and wit."
- Martin Cruz Smith
"Boonville Heralds the debut of an engaging, clear-eyed new talent. Anderson has achieved an engrossing vision of tangled lives on the edge of the world, and done it on an ambitious scale. He has drawn the Northern California counterculture scene, its mores and wildnesses, with a fresh, original hand. Best of all, he is writing as one of the rare members of his emerging generation that brings a true moral and philosophical depth to his edgy subject matter."
- Naomi Wolf
"Because I think Boonville by Robert Mailer Anderson is terrific, I am obliged to state that he is not a relative. He has, however, written a most exciting first novel and gives more than a few signs that he could become a member of that vanishing American breed - a major novelist."
- Norman Mailer
