"Lushly written, dramatically plotted. . . Fitch's Los Angeles is so real it breathes." -"Atlantic Monthly"
"There is nothing less than a stellar sentence in this novel. Fitch's emotional honesty recalls the work of Joyce Carol Oates, her strychnine sentences the prose of Paula Fox." -"Cleveland Plain Dealer"
"A page-turning psychodrama. . . . Fitch's prose penetrates the inner lives of her characters] with immediacy and bite." -"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)
"Fitch wonderfully captures the abrasive appeal of punk music, the bohemian, sometimes squalid lifestyle, the performers, the drugs, the alienation. This is crackling fresh stuff you don't read every day." -"USA"" Today"
"In dysfunctional family narratives, Fitch is to fiction what Eugene O'Neill is to drama." -"Chicago"" Sun-Times"
"Riveting. . . . An uncommonly accomplished page-turner." -"Elle.
