Reviews

Durkee has given the coming-of-age novel enough twists to make his version seem something else entirely--a ghost story, perhaps, mixed with a sexual comedy and slice-of-working-class Southern life.--Matthew Flamm
Mississippi-raised author Lee Durkee portrays his hero's feckless dissolution with considerable comic flair and a sharp eye for regional manners, good and bad...readers will finish the book feeling they've been treated to quite a ride.--Paul Gray
Durkee writes with a southern accent that doesn't smother a unique voice, and his roller-coaster ride of a story leaves a reader breathless and waiting for more.
