As smart, perceptive, and evocative as [Kaui Hart] Hemmings'...superlative short story collection HOUSE OF THIEVES...was...her irresistible debut novel is light years beyond....[A] sublimely mature style, and beguiling command of theme and setting..." 04/15/2007

"[A] sharply observed, frequently hilarious and intermittently heartbreaking look at a well-meaning but confused father trying to hold together his unconventional family." 03/05/2007

"[A] remarkable feat....Wrenching." (starred review) 04/15/2007

"[Kaui Hart] Hemmings channels the voice of her befuddled middle-aged hero with virtuosity, as he teeters between acerbic and sentimental, scoffing at himself even as he grasps for redemption." 06/25/2007
