Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Pithy and engaging…A peppery mix of redemption and hilarity…Harrison’s ability to weave offbeat characters and outrageous circumstances into tight, poetic, and often hilarious fiction is a rare and welcome gift.” Seattle Times
“A mint of down-home goodness…Genuine, full-throttle fun coasting over ever-threatening currents of pathos and heartbreak.” Boston Herald
“Harrison is inherently refreshing, seeming to ditch due respect for civilization and to take off for strange parts. His energy appears unmitigated.” Publishers Weekly
“Richly allusive and wickedly funny, Harrison’s book offers three delightful studies of unique individuals battling inventively against society’s demands for conformity.” Library Journal
“In each of these ingenious, funny, and absorbing tales, Harrison muses over the fact that while other people can be veritable quagmires for our souls, their odd, selfish, and reckless behavior can also be, perversely enough, a genuine elixir.” Booklist
