INTUITION OF THE NEWS by Robert Wexelblatt

Praises of  Robert Wexelblatt's writing:


". . . loaded with wit, bristling with irony, draped in erudition and studded with metaphysics." - Zofia Smardz, review of The Decline of Our Neighborhood, New York Times Book Review

"Wexelblatt first collection of short fiction must be admired for its academic brilliance and sophisticated wit…" - Review of Life in the Temperate Zone, Publishers Weekly

"Wexelblatt’s book is laden with wit, with wry observations, gentle sarcasm, and wicked ironies. It always has just enough laughter to keep its characters (and the reader) from spinning off into the abysses." - Fred Marchant, review of Life in the Temperate Zone in Harvard Book Review

"A writer of great wit and superb imagination, Wexelblatt’s worlds are welcoming and all-encompassing."  - Review of The Decline of Our Neighborhood in Booklist
