Reviews
"This book is proof that there are pleasures of the mind." -- Kathy Acker
"Olsen is among the finest writers of social critique and speculative fiction today."
"Smart and moving and elegant, its seemingly offhand scenes are as effortlessly poignant as a handful of old snapshots." -- Shelley Jackson
"Fancifully embroidering into the narrative Nietzsche's themes and aphorisms--'Every sentence is a kiss'--Olsen is a fine and daring writer, equal to the material."
