Editorial Reviews

Annie Sprinkle
Each chapter of Pulling Taffy reads like a stack of Nan Goldin color photos come to life. The exuberant rhythm of Matt Bernstein Sycamore's over-the-top honesty sent me into an erotic trance.

I admire the candor and the reticence in this beautiful, anguished, funny novel. I have seen the future and it is Pulling Taffy
-author of A Boy's Own Story
Kevin Killian
With a reporter's eye and the ear of a spy, Matt Bernstein Sycamore writes, in Pulling Taffy, everything we would never have guessed about being young, available, and high as a kite in a handful of cities at the turn of our mercantile century. He and his book are beyond good and evil, he's Nietzsche Junior.
author of I Cry Like a Baby and Little Men
Michael Lowenthal
When my senses were first spanked by Matt Bernstein Sycamore's shamelessly frank, hilariously deadpan, flamboyantly raunchy writing, I felt as though I were being woken from a literary slumber. His voice is fresh in both senses of the word: new and impudent.
author of Avoidance and The Same Embrace

    Fantastic!

    Pulling Taffy is a bold and extremely engaging novel. Matt Bernstein-Sycamore is a fresh and entertaining new writer who has more flavors than Baskin Robbins, not to mention more nail polish then Revlon!
