"The coming of age or more pointedly, the coming into adulthood of an errand young man, bent on self destruction and in the throes of addiction. At times, emotionally difficult to read, and at others, witty and whimsical. Using more than one voice, the author tells the characters' separate, though intertwined stories, giving us a glimpse into each of their lives and challenges, as well as the driving forces of their choices in life."
"Takes you back in time, loved the characters, loved their stories, happy, sad and tragic. Colourful people I wanted to meet. Brought out emotions and I kept wanting more...hope the author publishes again soon!"
