"Told in a free-flowing narrative style that features a number of memorable characters, Fante's novel is dark, bleak, gritty, and inventively vulgar. It's also honest, painful, and occasionally tender."--Booklist
Readers who don't hang up... won't be able to stop listening--New York Times
"...writing that is a violent lyrical blizzard...."--Uncut Magazine
" I can describe Dan Fante's work in one word... sublime."--Soud-Ouest, France.
"Fante is a brilliantly economical stylist . . . sad, bitter, yet somehow infused with hope."--The Face
"Fante offers moments that brush the genius of Bukowski and Hubert Selby, Jr."--Elle Magazine
"Fante's voice is strong, fun, smart and edgy and it makes 86'd a great read."--San Francisco Book Review
"If you like your prose vodka-soaked, soulful, and bleeding on the page, then Fante is your man."--Ben Meyers, 3AM Magazine
"With Fante, and his father before him, there are never any false feelings or pretentiousness in the work... you know he has been where he writes from, and judging by the sound of things, it has been one hell of a wild ride."--Sacramento Book Review

Although I enjoyed this book I don't feel it is in the same league as its predecessor. It did not grip me quite the same and the story seamed less poignant. None the less fans of Fante and of hard boiled, gritty novels will enjoy this.
Author of Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last
This novel is one of the finest I've read in a while, and probably tops my list on the gritty realism catalog I've read (besides Tony O'Neill's Sick City, which got me into this genre in the first place). At turns funny and brutally sad, this is a novel of a life falling apart and sweet, sweet redemption that will leave you coming back for more.
