  • Johnson succeeds so well as to make one eager for more

    John Sutherland, London Review of Books
  • A beautifully tragic chronicle

    New York Magazine
  • Denis Johnson is one of our most inventive, unpredictable novelists

    New York Times Book Review
  • Johnson knows his people inside out, their lost, lonely, never-had-a-chance lives. He knows how they talk and think, and he makes us know them too

    Publishers Weekly
  • One of the strongest examples of fiction noir since Robert Stone's first work appeared-with an absence of sentimentality and an overall shape that's perfectly judged, this is one of the most impressive first novels of recent seasons - full of a fiery recoiling kick, the dreadful power of inhuman ugliness and misfortune beyond redemption

    Kirkus Reviews
