Elliot Allagash

by Simon Rich

This is a very moral tale - be careful what you wish for! A hugely funny roller-coaster of a book - but with a real warmth and sympathy even for the monster that is Elliot's father and especially for Elliot himself.


When I tell people stories about Elliot, they always ask me the same question: Why did he devote so much time and effort to improving your life if he barely knew you and the two of you had just met? It’s a good question. And the only way I can even begin to answer it is by talking about video games.
