Praise

“An insane history lesson by an elegant and inspired writer; time-warping and anarchistic. Wildly comic, both lyrical and spiritual.” —Richard Price
 
California Bloodstock is an oyster of a book, salty and delicious; a pearl-handled, silver barreled derringer of a book, small, elegant and snappy; a medicine rattle of a book, mystic and a little spooky. I was sickened, delighted and very impressed.” —Tom Robbins
 
California Bloodstock is most stylishly composed, in the cool, nihilistic manner of Joan Didion and Thomas McGuane.” —Edward Abbey
 
 “McDonell’s book goes off like a string of firecrackers. A zany, mean take-off on the Old West in a class with Thomas Berger’s Little Big Man and E.L. Doctorow’s Welcome to Hard Times. —Edward Hoagland
 
“A sure, swift book . . . like being set adrift in a High Sierra Rapids and banged, willy-nilly, against every rock in the river. A young woman is wronged; cowards flee in all directions; payback is sweet. The central figures of California history swagger through this delightfully nasty novel.” —Tim Cahill
