Alexander Boldizar

Dear Librarians,

A Siberian mountain man must travel to Harvard to win back his homeland... and Africa to win back his heart. A wild, existential, comedic romp in the traditions of Kafka and Heller, THE UGLY has been described as "A full on satire of contemporary law as mesmerizing and complex as something lost from Foster Wallace, yet as light in tone as A Confederacy of Dunces."

Pulitzer finalist Laila Lalami wrote, "The Ugly brims with intelligence and humor," the president of the American Psychiatric Association called it "a modern day Beowolf," and author Pete Duval said, "THE UGLY is the funniest, smartest novel I've read in a long, long time."

It is one of the strangest, quirkiest books you'll read this year.
