PRAISE FOR STEVEN GILLIS:
"Gillis' writing is illuminatingly strange, filled with power, electric, and will stay with you long after you think you've gone to sleep."
-- Stephen Elliot, author of Happy Baby
"Steven Gillis writes as if his life depended on it. His imagination creates a complete world: Dickens without the furniture. This great bustling book seems to embody all he knows and can intuit of the world. As common as the morning paper, as rare as piano music, Gillis' talent is transcendent."
-- Ben Cheever, author of The Good Nanny
"Steven Gillis adores language, grasps what makes and breaks a family, and loves to squeeze things until they shatter. He's the one catapulting your new plasma tv set down the street to see what happens. Richard Bausch and John McNally come to mind with a splash from John Cheever's clever martini. Most of these characters lives are train wrecks in progress. Yet you, dear reader, will get off on the surreal glow from their deer-in-the-headlight eyes."
-- Richard Peabody, editor, Gargoyle Magazine
