  • 'Families, heartbreak, political and social comedy - there is little that Dean Bakopoulos doesn't grasp in an articulate, wittily perceptive, and soulful way, before he hands it back to the reader as literary art. Please Don't Come Back from the Moon is an original and brilliant first work of fiction'

    Lorrie Moore, author of Birds of America
  • 'Please Don't Come Back from the Moon is a pitch-perfect debut by a fine young novelist. Dean Bakopoulos makes his indelible mark on the coming-of-age novel'

    Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain
  • 'Deftly welding magic realism with social satire, Bakopoulos captures the dark side of the working-class dream'

    New York Times
  • 'A delightful debut novel. In it a combination of different ingredients, including raw literary talent and a sprinkling of magical realism, form the kind of story that I suspect people will be talking about in book clubs and sharing with neighbors. . . clever, unusual and exciting'

    Washington Post
