Reviews

Inventive.... Hajdu's vigorous send-up of the late-20th-century music scene sings.--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
A reverberant and eye-opening portrait of an artist going her own way and finally saving herself; highly recommended.--Library Journal (starred review)
An entertaining satire about a musical genre not typically known for its humor.
Hajdu has created a weird and strangely wonderful fictional evocation of New York's 1970s and 1980s underground music and art scenes.
