James Hynes is the author of three New York Times Notable Books of the Year. That same publication praises Kings of Infinite Space as unspeakably funny! This offbeat novel satirizes an experience ubiquitous to modern times - office life. With a defeated sigh, ex-college professor Paul Trilby faces the downward spiral that is his existence. After his wife and three subsequent girlfriends dump him, and he loses just as many jobs, he's sure he's a pawn in some vast conspiracy. Worse still, he may be losing the only thing he has left - his mind.

    " You know, I don't actually remember whether this book was great or not. But I do remember it. And I have a passing thought that it was hilarious. The fact that I remember it, however, implies it is worth recommending. "

    " This starts out pretty entertaining and rapidly goes straight into idiotic. Kind of a shame - I enjoyed the first 50 pages or so, but it moves from clever to wacky at such a breakneck speed that I found myself wondering if I'd mistakenly picked up a different book. "

    " Hynes does for office work (for the state government, no less) what he did for academia in the Lecturer's Tale, providing witty satire of office politics and drudgery. At the same time he tells a macabre tale of mysterious goings-on after hours that takes a turn to the supernatural (the point being that office work is so mindless that the undead could do it for you?). I would have liked a little more of the office satire and less of the scary tale, but it was definitely a page turner. "

    " Perhaps I wasn't in the right frame of mind when i read this book but I did not enjoy the story at all. The ending of the book was to over the top with the exception of maybe the last paragraph which actually made me chuckle. "
