“Quick’s prose is sharp and cutting …. a compact powerhouse of a novel …. subversive, unexpected, and utterly compelling.” Booklist *STARRED REVIEW*

“Quick insightfully presents a person who is more than the sum of his personal politics, showing how selfish instincts battle nobler ones–a valuable lesson in increasingly politically stratified times …. provides a deeper discussion about divisive politics.” Shelf Awareness *STARRED REVIEW*

“Quick’s novel does not undercut either political pole as much as the entire divisive state of modern discourse …. irreverent and hilarious. Quick offers timely reminders that real people exist behind stereotypes and humanity is complex but beautiful in its messiness, even if it takes a little extra time and effort beyond a knee-jerk to see it.” Lincoln Journal Star
