Praise
"A debut collection of nine very odd tales that stretch the bounds of storytelling....The weirdest possible blend of Kenneth Patchen, Max Apple, and Tom Clancy."
"[A] remarkable debut collection....Johnson's heroes are isolated and alienated, but are capable of feeling just the right emotion at just the right time."
"Mr. Johnson delineates these lives with a mixture of wry amusement and genuine sympathy, satiric glee and elegaic compassion, seemingly contradictory attitudes that combine to create an idiosyncratic and compelling voice."
