"A novel of undeniable and unusual merit, DeCapite's achievement is so extraordinary that a belated appreciation must be penned in the hope it will cause at least one other person to pick up this book. . . . [A] down-at-the-heels, absorbing masterpiece. . . ."
----Jocko Weyland, Rain Taxi, Spring 2008
"One of the better American novels published in the last several years . . ."
----Harvey Pekar, The Austin Chronicle, November 19, 1999
Read it for its humor. Read it for its pain. Or read it for its language, a hard-boiled version of beat expansiveness. One thing's certain: with all the different and sometimes contradictory things that this book accomplishes, you'll never read anything else like it.
----Frank Green, The Cleveland Free Times, December 16, 1998
