The Buzz…

“Consistently seasoned with laughs, this memoir is adroitly warm and deep… An uncommonly entertaining story replete with consistent wit and lethal weaponry.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“I tried calling him to tell him, ‘That’s not how I remember it,’ but he cried, ‘Mom, it’s MY book!'” (Harrison’s mom)

“It reads like fiction that is too crazy to be anything but truth. Fans of memoir, personal essays, and humor writing will devour this in one sitting.” (Library Journal)

“I haven’t read it yet.” (Harrison’s wife)

“What I have read of Harrison Key’s memoir makes me want to read more.” (Roy Blount Jr., Author of Long Time Leaving: Dispatches from Up South)

“Both laugh-out-loud funny and observant about the ways we become our parents while asserting ourselves, The World’s Largest Man is a wise delight.” (BookPage)

“Harrison Key will make you laugh and cry in his compelling essays. And whatever emotion he evokes, you will admire the style, grace and clarity of his prose.” (Lee Gutkind, Founder and Editor of Creative Nonfiction)

“I haven’t laughed like this in years. I felt like I stumbled upon an undiscovered treasure when I read Harrison Scott Key’s The World’s Largest Man. I couldn’t wait to tell my friends. Rare hilarity, indeed, in these asinine times.” (Neil WhiteAuthor of In the Sanctuary of Outcasts)
