“Reading The Kid is like riding a wave. Sentences hurtle forward yet seldom seem to get where they're going or at first appear to be going. Indeed, a period often falls not where grammar would dictate, but where a train of thought has run its course, where the narrator has, as it were, run out of breath. Tenses change mid-sentence from past to present, then back again. The entire novel reads like one long, mordantly humorous sentence.”      
--- The Hungarian Quarterly
