"A beautifully paced, original novel which moves so fast that once you start reading, it becomes impossible to stop. As swift as Never Mind Nirvana is, it also has a gravity and an underlying sadness that’s not a put-on—it feels real. Mark Lindquist’s simplicity, humanity, and humor are on full display."
—Bret Easton Ellis
"Never Mind Nirvana is the first novel I’ve read that makes music as important as food, clothing, romance—a fresh twist millions will be able to identify with—and the music of Lindquist’s language is a perfect match for the subject. I think he’s the writer to watch in the new millennium."
"Never Mind Nirvana is the perfect book for any guy who has to think about what bands are coming to town before planning a date, for any woman who wants to have her suspicions confirmed about how lonely and strange guys can be, and for everyone who has ever wondered who’s better, Nirvana or Pearl Jam. Lindquist’s best yet."
