Praise

Edgewater Angels is in a class by itself. . . . Meallet is a wonderful, wonderful writer.” –The Washington Post Book World

“Every now and then a good book comes from a place you might not expect. . . . This time that community is San Pedro, and the good book is Edgewater Angels.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“A beguiling coming of age story . . . [that] in its comic point of view, plot twists, and moral vision . . . reads like an unabashed descendant of Huck Finn with a bit of David Lynch’s passion . . . thrown in.” –The Village Voice

“An exuberantly absurdist look at growing up poor and shrouded by violence. . . . Meallet takes the most ominous event as an opportunity for black comedy, and finds true manhood in the least macho of behaviors.” –The New York Times Book Review
