Publisher's Summary

Carl Reiner intersperses plots of biblical heresy, adultery, mild schizophrenia, and quadruplets separated at birth. NNNNN is the title of the protagonist Nat's novel, which is a comic retelling of Cain and Abel's struggles to procreate in the Garden of Eden, parts of which Reiner includes in his story. As Nat reinvents the origin of man, he investigates his own origins, looking into his adoption and discovering that he is one of four quadruplets who have been separated at birth. As Reiner interweaves the stories of Nat's four siblings, he creates sidesplitting tales of adultery, new-wave psychiatry, lost childhood love, and mistaken identity. NNNNN is Reiner's most impressive work to date, sure to captivate Reiner's generations of fans and create many new ones.

    "5 Stars...(one for each"

    I have been a fan of Carl Reiner ever since his Alan Brady days on the Dick Van Dyke show. Aside from his son Rob (meathead), I have never disliked anything he has been involved in.

    I really enjoyed hearing the author read his own book. Carl Reiner made the characters come to life with just slight variations of tone and accent for each character. The story holds your interest and is full of tongue-in-cheek humor. Just when you think you have figured something out, Carl creates a new twist that keeps you guessing and wanting to hear more. He brings all of the open story lines together and then adds an unexpected twist at the end.

    "NN??NN??N???"

    Very dry, classic Reiner comedy. It was not what I expected, however, I was not disappointed with the title.
