"Darrin Doyle's The Girl Who Ate Kalamazoo is wildly out there, but its message about family dysfunction is achingly real.", Best New Winter Reads Pick

"As quirky, funny, and masterful as it is, Darrin Doyle's The Girl Who Ate Kalamazoo isn't just a book about a girl who ate a city--it's about the hunger we all have, for love, for family, and for home." --Alix Ohlin, author of The Missing Person and Babylon and Other Stories

"Darrin Doyle's The Girl Who Ate Kalamazoo is about, well, the girl who ate Kalamazoo, but it's about much more than that: family, religion, urban blight and renewal, fame, literature, sister love, and weightlifters. This is why Audrey Mapes is such an incredible character: in creating this girl who can and will eat everything, Darrin Doyle has also created a way to talk about the things that matter most to us. It's an incredible, riotous, beautifully written, sneakily profound novel. I don't know of another book like it; I would be jealous of it if I weren't so busy being amazed by it." --Brock Clarke, author of An Arsonist's Guide to Writers' Homes in New England
