“Unlike anything else you will read for many years”

~ BF ~

“An epic Odyssean journey around the South. A Bildungsroman channeling Goethe, Salinger, and Twain. A Joycean street-by-street cartography of New Orleans. A Hunter S. Thompson-esque bender, a year-long narcotics-fueled joyride through Louisiana, Texas, and Mexico. A lyric meditation on the nature of identify, the search for the self, that owes as much to Marcus Aurelius as it does to Walker Percy. A Toolean picaresque sketch of the colorful character of the Crescent City and a saga of a doomed romance that would have pleased even Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald.”

“What is certain, however, is that the author has written a brilliant book: funny, smart, and playful, with a spectacular mind for language and ear for accents, and one that searches through profound existential questions with a warmth and humanity that at once reveals and celebrates the absurdity and fragility of life.”

~ BF ~

“The arrival of this novel suggests a remarkable literary talent”
