Reviews

"This irresistible mash-up of noir and gothic horror from Donwood (Household Worms) defines the term 'cult classic.' This is a wild, shambolic ride, but its central idea--of a dark world just underneath our own--is as noir as it gets." --"Publishers Weekly," Starred Review
"Wonderfully wacky fiction.... Donwood is a nimble and impish writer, taking his story to the edge of absurdity...but never letting it slip away completely. There's an element of real danger here, lurking beneath the wordplay and quirky dialogue, and there's also a rather touching--if wickedly convoluted--love story. Just a whole lot of fun." --Booklist
