"Fascinating. Lingers in the mind...Mr. Leavitt''s sense of pacing, his graceful sentences and his storytelling ability dovetail nicely." (Philip Lopate, New York Times Book Review)
"A brilliant, wise first novel. The delight of the book is Leavitt''s style. It flashes with pathos, anger, and camp wit; it rises to a subtle urban lyricism." (Vogue)
"An amazingly perceptive novel." (San Francisco Chronicle)
Leavitt's neat prose leads us through this deeply felt, touching story. The plot itself may seem weird, at a first glance. But let it take you by the hand and follow its humane, passionate, suffering characters. A very good reader makes the experience exquisite.
