“…brilliant…compulsively readable…a plot that keeps you guessing…wholly transporting…Quick has a uniquely rewarding voice and one that, for his native Philadelphia, is creating a space in contemporary fiction all of its own.” GQ (UK)

“Instead of breaking your heart, Quick steals it, strengthens it and gives it back…a fine writer with a gift similar to that of fellow American novelist John Irving — creating quirky, flawed but ultimately lovable and deeply human main characters.” Winnipeg Free Press

“…this darkly funny, profanity-filled novel fits together, jagged edges and all…readers will be engrossed.” Publishers Weekly

“…a wonderful exploration of the unexpected…an encomium to the power of empathy and love, and ultimately redemption.” We Love This Book (UK)
