I love this book. It is wise, funny, surprising, touching, and wonderful company * Jonathan Safran Foer * Adam Andrusier has created that rare thing: a memoir which delivers the coming-of-age but also reaches far beyond. The writing here about family is excellent, the characters and scenes memorable, but from the first they're engaged also in a history. Two Hitlers and a Marilyn takes in the world as widely as possible, always searching for significance and connection * David Vann * A comic and poignant memoir about growing up in the suburbs, fandom, stalking Ronnie Barker, and much more. A funny, moving read * Zadie Smith * At times hilarious, at others heartbreaking, Andrusier's memoir provides a fascinating insight into obsession * John Boyne * Madcap and thoroughly engaging, Adam Andrusier's vivid memoir brings to mind the early Philip Roth. This is a book of antic comedy that resonates and intrigues * Lisa Appignanesi * A fabulously interesting book and incredibly pleasurable to read. Very funny and strangely entrancing. It is about so much, but effortlessly * Adam Phillips * Hilarious and moving. * David Baddiel * Beautifully written * Maureen Lipman * Andrusier has a genuine comic gift and he's remarkably technically adept. You could easily assume he had been writing this sort of stuff for years. * Daily Mail * Offering a warm, witty and poignant glimpse into the past, Two Hitlers and a Marilyn is a memoir of fandoms, forgiveness, growing up and letting go. * Culturefly *
