“Gosh, he’s a bloody good writer! Verbose but hilarious. His stories present a mad, vulgar, dysfunctional world that the author flounders around in. Great entertainment.\" — Harold Nawy

“’Peggie’ is the funniest and rudest thing I’ve read in years, and \'Dog Days\' is just extraordinary…original and disturbing.” — Tony Cook

“Levin may possibly be the master of the rant.”
— Elizabeth Richardson on “Stupidity: Its Uses & Abuses”

“Heavy and brilliant.”
— Douglas Rushkoff on “Everything’s All Right in the Middle East”

\"A writer of talent and intelligence.\" — Irving Louis Horowitz
