Drew Zimmerman

"As a narrator, Dex is peculiar and memorable, calling to mind Ignatius J. Reilly from John Kennedy Toole’s equally picaresque A Confederacy of Dunces(1980)."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Zimmerman’s hero is not afraid and pulls no punches. This is topical in an era where literary worth itself is under siege and subject to political trends and freakish ideology. We are asked to choose sides. Are we the banners of progressive material in elementary schools? Or the book burners, the ones who view classic literature as a colonial onslaught? What’s a reader to do?" --James Rosenthal
