A Coupla Shades of Taupe  isn’t for everyone—the book’s got adult language, frightened hamsters, drugs, and clown abuse. But A Coupla Shades of Taupe  was for these people:

“Oh. My. Goodness! Court Burback made me laugh throughout this whole entire novel! There’s a clown chained to a wall, lots of ridiculous sexual escapades, a few amusing misunderstandings, and the most infuriating and comically funny ending of all time.”  — 

“First off, DO NOT try to read this in your cube while pretending to work. The laughter that replaces your usual muffled sobbing will be a clue that you’re up to something. Not only is it funny, it’s very well-written. The laughs per page density is frighteningly high, mostly due to Court Burback’s fantastic similes and comedic timing.”  — Dan’s Dangerous Book Blog

*Selected as a Top Pick. “The author’s sarcastic, twisted sense of humor makes Tucker Max look like a goody-two-shoes and Austin Powers look like a sexy gentleman. Court has a handle on words, and she uses them like a stand-up comic. Her metaphors would get any English student promptly kicked out of class… with a begrudging A plus.”  — Underground Book Reviews

“There are hardly many writers, I believe, that can pull off as good a comedy as Ms. Burback.”           —

“If you like South Park and Family Guy, if you know all of the Monty Python creations by heart, if reruns of Benny Hill are your type of show, you will most probably love this book even if you have never heard of Fifty Shades of Grey.”  —

“This is NOT how we raised you.”  — Court’s mom
