Praise

Praise for The Gangster of Love:

“Playful, inventive . . . Asks serious questions about family, exile, identity, about the problems of learning to operate in another language.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Hagedorn paints a lively portrait that in many ways is impressionistic . . . engrossing, unsentimental, and quite funny.” —The Washington Post
 
The Gangster of Love is more about journeys than destinations, and Hagedorn’s steamy prose makes you happy to be along for the ride.” —Entertainment Weekly
 
“This novel of Manila-meets-the-underground-American hip is high energy and moves full-speed ahead.” —New York Post
 
“One of the most auspicious literary novels about the rock scene since Don DeLillo’s Great Jones Street.” —The Boston Globe
 
“Engrossing . . . marked by a stunning lyrical elegance.” —Spin
