Excerpts from reviews:
“It is an elegant shortness over the story that creates drama and intensity” Gunnar Vilberg, Deichmann Litteraturblogg
“…you are left with the feeling of knowing Tweedy, his life, but that is, of course, not the whole truth. The book tells maybe more about American culture, and it does so very well”. Andreas Milde, VG
“Johansen manages to portray Tweedy as the weird original he is”. Øyvind Berekvam, Berekvam's blog
“The short hypnotic poems draws nicely up situations and time images, giving the appearance of a listeners logbook”. Øyvind Vågnes, Dag og Tid
