Lipsyte is filled with anger, humor, despair, and some insane kernel of hope for a better world and he brings this to every sentence of The Ask, A brutal and bitter laying bare of psychic state of the union in this twilight of America’s fading empire. This makes this sound more po-faced than the proceedings actually are. A riot of bizarre characters, absurd, and laugh out loud situations all narrated by the comic voice of one Milo Burke. This is quite painful and cuts very close to the bone with only the dim light of laughter to keep you company as you sail into the night, which is not good but cold and very long.
