"...deft, sharp, beautifully timed and paced satire, with heart and soul to boot here. The prose is “clean”...every sentence is full of telling and sharply observed details, almost all based either in the senses or on a humorous and nimble mind."
--Paul Harding, Pulitzer-prize winning author of Tinkers and Enon, from the Tin House Writer's Workshop
"...exotic landscape, energetic prose, wonderfully smart, darkly comic, persuasively male voice ... reminiscent of the best sort of hard-boiled detective fiction."
--Marian Thurm, author of The Clairvoyant and the story collection What's Come Over You?, from the Yale Writers' Conference
