Reviews

"What cleverly fills the honeycomb of LaCava's own story is a compassionate, evocative biography of seemingly aberrant things and a collection of historical anecdotes that most readers would never otherwise learn, let alone find gathered all together in one small (but not diminishing), deliberate, and careful book."--Booklist
"A series of wistfully illustrated essays. . . . A strange and lovely journey."--Flavorwire
"Truly a lovely book in every sense."--Minnesota Public Radio's "The Daily Circuit Blog"
"This captivating, wonderfully strange little book is like no other I've ever read. Stephanie LaCava has created something original and true, at once emotionally resonant and intellectually challenging. A sheer delight."--Dani Shapiro, author of Devotion and Slow Motion
"Its brilliance lies in the depth in plumbs. . . . Stephanie LaCava, along with the lovely illustrations throughout the book, shows us just how extraordinary these odd things are."--Matchbook Magazine
"With help from Matthew Nelson's elegant drawings, the worldly LaCava impresses by unearthing hidden treasures from a painful youth."--Interview Magazine
