Reviews

"Engrossing.... Cinematic, effortlessly beautiful descriptions will spark the reader's imagination, and myriad plot twists and turns will keep you guessing."--Chicago Tribune
"Kirshenbaum...has an original voice and, even better, an original sensibility."--Los Angeles Times
"[A] zany, irreverent, cheerful novel.... Bristles with energy and sharpness."--Boston Globe
"Lays bare [a] collection of Brooklyn souls in the... style of short story masters Raymond Carver and Ann Beattie."--Boston Herald
"A quicksilver fable... at once ironic and mystical, tender and edgy, loaded with shtick and downright subversive."--Booklist (Starred review)
