USA Today Evokes the lean style of Raymond Carver.
Kirkus Reviews Impressive...Ames set[s] down haunting urban scenes in a spare style that works like poetry.
Time Out London Unerringly builds up an accurate portrait of a dissolute young man floundering in a sea of amorality.
The Times Literary Supplement London This is New York at street level. Ames is something of a gambler [but he] negotiates the pitfalls with remarkable dexterity....There is an unforced sadness at the heart of this novel, and there lies the proof that the gamble has succeeded.
Dallas Morning News Crazy, frightening, poignant, funny encounters...utterly fearless in its unsentimental depiction of a young man courting self-destruction.
Booklist Ames makes [Alexander Vine] as horrifying an emblem of American young manhood as the coke-snorters of Bright Lights, Big City and Less Than Zero.
