“The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving is the funniest and most tough-minded novel I’ve read in a long time. Jonathan Evison is a great lyrical talent who deserves to be better known, and this is his best novel yet. You owe it to yourself to read it.” —Darin Strauss, author of Half a Life
“Jonathan Evison is a gifted raconteur with a wicked sense of humor and an unflagging empathy for humankind in all its sad, foible-filled magnificence. In The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving, his myriad talents are displayed in full bloom.” —Patrick DeWitt, author of The Sisters Brothers
