Editorial Reviews

Jim Cory
Myles' novel much resembles her poetry. Her narrative has the same jagged edges, the same turn-on-a-dime intellectual quirkiness, the same quality of pitiless observation…the ironic point-of-view, supplies the author with abundant comic effects, making her book, like Celine's, a tragedy that's God-awful funny.
Lambda Book Report
Kate Clinton
The Style is experimental without being annoying and without any condescension. Ms. Myles makes real the tough-girl narrator who muses on ambition and sexuality, grief and delight, with equal candor and grace.
