“A compassionate mystery of madness . . . gritty and funny, both smart-alecky and dark.”
Los Angeles Times

“Bristles with visionary energy.” —Vanity Fair

“One of our most talented young writers.” —Charles Baxter

Proves that Victor LaValle is a voice to be reckoned with for years to come.” —Ernesto Quiñonez, author of Bodega Dreams
