Reviews

"If there's any justice, anywhere, The Motel Life will be widely read and widely admired."--Booklist
"Vlautin's coiled, poetically matter-of-fact prose calls to mind S.E.Hinton."--Publishers Weekly
"Slighter than Carver, less puerile than Bukowski, Vlautin...manages to lay claim to the same blearyeyed territory, and...to make it new."--New York Times Book Review, EDITOR'S CHOICE
"A natural for the bigscreen and in fact Babel and 21 Grams writer Guillermo Arriaga has bought the film rights..."--Salt Lake City Tribune
"Both heartbreaking and inspirational...written...with a simple hypnotic tone that seems as if it was grown in the Reno heat."--Associated Press ASAP
"The furthest Vlautin's men can move is in circles, shackled to their dysfunctions and their meager paychecks..."--San Francisco Weekly
"I'm floored...This book feel so damn real, so powerful, so much like life, even if it's not yours."--Jonathan Zwickel, The Stranger
