The Washington Post and The Huffington Post are both in love with Sam Lipsyte’s The Ask.  In Washington, Lipsyte’s “rants become arias” and Huffington calls him “the poet laureate of overeducated American loserdom.”  If you haven’t yet read Five Chapters’ excerpt of The Ask, make sure you do; or, if you’d rather have Sam himself read it to you, make your way to Harper’s YouTube, to see him reading “Love: A Rebuke,” from the novel.
