"Wonderful...Perry L. Crandall, the underdog of Lottery, is profoundly lovable...so vivid and funny and poignant and joyful...the thinking man's guide to a happy life." * Washington Post *
"It has bags of charm" * Bookseller *
"A witty yet poignant social commentary where the empty value of money is set against the heart-warming traits of an unquestioningly loyal soul." * Easy Living *
