Reviews

"Spellbinding...Boyle's latest work of countercultural, biographical fiction will lure his devotees and the newly curious alike."--Booklist
"He writes with a youthful and sustained energy that parallels the zeal of his dreamers, and that ultimately attenuates their failures. There are few writers who seem more American."--New York Times Book Review
“This is a superbly paced novel that manages to feel simultaneously suspenseful and inevitable.”--Washington Post
“Few novelists have benefited more from the freedom unleashed by the psychedelic revolution than the prolific Boyle, . . . but here he shows a buttoned-down control over his material, a deadpan innocence in the face of seismic changes to come. . . . Boyle evokes a cultural flashpoint with implications that transcend acid flashbacks.”--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Boyle takes us deep inside the lives of [Timothy] Leary and his convention-bashing acolytes, offering a brisk read that provides much food for thought. Boyle fans will enjoy.”--Library Journal (starred review)
