Quotes & Awards

  • “Stephen Dobyns pulls off a neat misdirection in this brazenly titled comic crime novel. On its face, Is Fat Bob Dead Yet? is a frivolous romp through an underworld of solecism-spouting thieves and doltish enforcers. But…there’s surprising depth here, as Dobyns convenes an ensemble cast whose thwarted ambitions suffuse an antic storyline with an air of poignancy.”

    Washington Post

  • “Gold Dagger Award-finalist Dobyns’ genius for dark comedy makes this intricate crime novel a triumph that will appeal to Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen fans.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “A uproariously entertaining comic thriller that evokes Elmore Leonard and Donald E. Westlake but adds several layers of absurdity and a narrative voice that suggests metafiction meets a Greek chorus meets Jane Austen…Yes, it’s absurd; yes, it’s outrageous; but here’s the thing: somehow, amid all the craziness, there’s a beating heart, too.”
