"Not since Death of a Salesman has the despair of middle age been dramatized with such absorbing intensity. Through two acts of searing exposure, with lots of little jokes along the way to ease the bitterness, Jay Broad works for an archetypical history of the canker that may curdle any family's American Dream." - The Associated Press.
