"Delightfully manic and sharply intelligent … Klee is undoubtedly a formidable talent in the making—he can make sentences crackle with an intensity and humor not seen since David Foster Wallace." —Publishers Weekly
“Mr. Klee depicts the chaos with verve—he reads like J.G. Ballard zapped with a thousand volts of electricity.” —The Wall Street Journal
"It is possible to imagine proud parents George Saunders and Philip K. Dick (using Margaret Atwood as a surrogate mother) raising Miles Klee’s Ivyland as their own lovechild.” —The New York Observer
"Spiked with the lusty, random bloodletting of A Clockwork Orange and Orwellian in scope, Klee redefines and redesigns the Garden State.” —Interview
“Ivyland should be read by all who love the entropic, soulful hilarity of Thomas Pynchon’s The Crying of Lot 49.” —Matthew Gallaway
"Miles Klee’s fiction is not only devastatingly smart; it’s also ruthlessly hilarious. But I love it most for the manic comedy it manages to wring from despair: that’s a talent that’s likely to be more and more valuable in the coming years." —Jim Shepard
"Apocalyptic, word-drunk, inventive, hilarious—and that doesn’t begin to cover Miles Klee’s exuberant first novel. His catastrophic caterpillars alone are worth the journey; both the vision and the language delight." —Andrea Barrett
"Miles Klee’s Ivyland is pretty much like if John Barth and Philip K. Dick got gay-married and had a really weird and sensitive but also exquisitely talented baby who grew up as a millennial to write a totally messed up and wonderful book!” —Choire Sicha
“Ivyland is a harsh, spastic novel about drug-addled misfits clawing their way through a wrecked future that feels disconcertingly familiar. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s also got evil caterpillars, flung jellyfish, great prose, new drugs, sharp jokes, a stolen ice cream truck and a miracle tree.” —Justin Taylor
