Several reviews of Michael’s books:

“Levin’s verbal humor glistens.”
The New Yorker

“Outrageous…passionate…funny…entertaining…satirically engaging…so amusingly complex that one can’t help getting caught up by its machinery.”
The New York Times

“Lively with the indignation of a bright young man whose time has been wasted.”
The Washington Post

“Levin satirizes as effectively as Calvin Trillin and Kingsley Amis.”
