Editorial Reviews

Schmuck drips with self-loathing, near-sightedness, and sexually frustrated Ashkenazi goodness. In Schmuck, Kushner tells "true" stories based on his own mishaps and mortifying memories, which are energetically illustrated by the cream of the indie comix crop." - Megan Sass, Heeb Magazine " Schmuck increasingly becomes painful to read as you watch this poor schmuck get knocked about from rejection after rejection, but it's so freakin' funny (and for some of us, so relatable) that you just can't stop reading either." - The Pop Mythologist "This is a hell of a book . . . What's particularly great about it is that you forget that it's not all true." - Dustin Cabeal, Comics Bastards ". . . [Schmuck] examines his desperate search for love through his 20s, exhibiting an honest vulnerability amid a crude male culture." - Publisher's Weekly " Schmuck drips with self-loathing, near-sightedness, and sexually frustrated Ashkenazi goodness.
