Sinopse

The cult hit novel set in the not-too-distant future about a reluctant rebels defiance of his role in a bar coded society."Bells clanging, lights aflash, the plots ball bangs and rebounds.... A wonderful and wonderfully funny book."—James SallisLA Times"Writing with exceptional wit and wry insight... a skewed hybrid of Huxley and Vonnegut that... surpasses both in amusement value. Beautiful Soup is Brave New World sent through an irreverent spin cycle and populated by a cast of lovably eccentric rebels whose caustic commentary exposes the hypocritical values not just of supposedly problem-free twenty-first century society but of our own society."—Carl HaysBooklist (American Library Association)"Soups an incisive, wry social satire that so perfectly snares its targets... all the biggies... with such depth of emotion and pure lucidity its only after ones awe has slightly diminished that one feels the idiot grin spread across his or her face. So dont dawdle!"—Robert MoralesReflexPraise for Harvey Jacobss Work"Hypnotized, the reader is compelled to listen."—Time Magazine"Every page—every half page—yields some sudden jolt of comic or lyric observation... He likewise manages to satirize our all-too human foibles and failures without becoming too blackly unforgiving."—Thomas M. DischWashington Post"His characters are haunting... I have rarely enjoyed finding a writer as much as I have enjoyed my own discovery of Jacobs."—Robert CromieChicago Tribune"Quietly amused, wry approach that gives distinction to Mr. Jacobs work... his dry humor would be hard to improve on."—Elizabeth EastonThe Saturday Review"The characters who climb Jacobs ladder are in search of a friend or a lover, but the ladder is shaped like a corkscrew, most of the rungs are missing, and theres no room at the top... Give us more Jacobs."—Playboy"Here is an author who sees life clearly and with humor everything there is to know."—Publishers Weekly"Move over Philip Roth, Mel Brooks, Heironymus Bosch. At last weve got another original... an already master."—Ann RosenbergPhiladelphia Inquirer
