Michiko KakutaniMs. Spiotta lavishes on Nik all her eclectic, deeply felt knowledge of music and pop culture. While her skeptical, appraising eye lends a satiric edge to her portrait of this willful narcissist, her understanding of his inner life also fuel-injects it with genuine emotion…[Spiotta] has written a novel that's both a clever meditation on the feedback loop between life and art, and a moving portrait of a brother and sister, whose wild youth on the margins of the rock scene has given way to the disillusionments and vexations of middle age.
