"Woodrell knows deeply the subjects he writes on . . . Most important, he knows the voices of his people, and he never sounds a false or condescending note."―Pinckney Benedict,
"He celebrates blood kin, home country and hot sex in this rich, funny, headshakingly original novel. Woodrell is a ladystinger of a writer."―Annie Proulx
"Slick, sparkling, stylized....takes on a mythic quality."―The New York Times Book Review
"A backcountry Shakespeare....The inhabitants of Daniel Woodrell's fiction often have a streak that's not just mean but savage; yet physical violence does not dominate his books. What does dominate is a seasoned fatalism....Woodrell has tapped into a novelist's honesty, and lucky for us, he's remorseless that way."―Los Angeles Times
"Woodrell is a marvellous writer."―Roddy Doyle
