Reviews

A cage-rattling, profoundly satisfying book.
-- Pam Houston, O, The Oprah Magazine
Mesmerizing...City Boy abounds in...mordant wit and keen psychological observations.
-- Boston Herald
The dark and punishing terrain of the broken human heart is flawlessly charted by Jean Thompson in City Boy.
