"Jonathan Baumbach has been a hero of mine since I started writing. I was then, and remain today, avid for novelists who push the limits of the novel's form without sacrificing its traditional human juices. Baumbach is just such a writer, and B is just such a novel-smart, edgy, full of feeling, not quite like anything else I've ever read."
Michael Cunningham, author of The Hours
