From The Today Show - A Today Show Summer Must-Read

From USA Today
“Rouse writes with a wise, witty and wicked voice.”

From Booklist
“Hilarious! Any reader who has tried to 'fit in' somewhere outside his or her comfort zone will readily empathize with Rouse’s rousing and ultimately successful lifestyle change.”

From Library Journal
“Wade is David Sedaris meets Dave Barry—every page is good for a laugh.”

From Tom Perrotta, bestselling author of Election, Little Children, and The Abstinence Teacher
“Wade Rouse is a true oddball: half Henry David Thoreau, half Oliver Wendell Douglas. AT LEAST IN THE CITY SOMEONE WOULD HEAR ME SCREAM is a funny, good-natured chronicle of a fish out of water, slowly learning to breathe.”

From A.J. Jacobs, bestselling author of The Year of Living Biblically
“In AT LEAST IN THE CITY SOMEONE WOULD HEAR ME SCREAM, Wade Rouse’s inner Eddie Albert does battle with his inner Eva Gabor. I won’t tell you who wins, but the fight is immensely entertaining.”

From Jen Lancaster, bestselling author of Such a Pretty Fat and Pretty in Plaid
“Somewhere between Thoreau’s Walden Pond and Oliver Douglas’s Green Acres lies Wade Rouse. In AT LEAST IN THE CITY SOMEONE WOULD HEAR ME SCREAM, Rouse details his quest to shed the trappings of his fabulous life to live more simply… except no one told him how hard the simple life would be. Rouse is a master raconteur and his transition from city slicker to country mouse is filled with side-spitting humor, heart, and, of course, bands of marauding raccoons. This book has now taken its place at the top of my favorites list!”
