A playful, tender, intellectually challenging, and funny novel. -Josh Cook, at The Huffington Post
The Complete Works of Marvin K. Mooney is not quite meta-fiction. It's more batshit-crazy fiction. -Ned Vizzini at L Magazine
The sheer greatness of Higgs' novel calls the capacity of the word greatness into question. -Dennis Cooper
