Reviews

"McCracken [has an] engaging voice, a sharp eye for those moments when the grotesque hides behind the unexceptional--and an ability to persuade us that what appears most unlikely is often most illuminating and, frequently, most true." -- Francine Prose, Los Angeles Times

"Funny and heartbreaking.... A terrific book....You could gulp [these stories] like heart-candy." -- The Boston Sunday Globe

"Impressive . . . elegantly written." -- New York Times Book Review

"McCracken is a . . . robust, ferocious romantic who sees reality with all its chinks, twitches, and zits, and finds it beautiful." -- Katherine Dunn, author of Geek Love
