Editorial Reviews

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.
The Progressive
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.
