Lynn Crawford’s latest novel published by DittoDitto in Detroit.
This is a stunningly attractive book – Lynn Crawford’s so-far best, which is saying a lot. A Big Bang of narrative invention. In a delicious counterpoint of stories, it brings to an apogee Crawford’s power to invest her complex, questioning, lovable characters (mainly small-town folk by birth or migration) with exotic, alien, weird attributes.
– Harry Mathews, author of Cigarettes, My Life in CIA
Crawford writes her speckled urban New World with the fancy of a poet and recreates its dreamy detail with the cruelty of an artist. The world she draws here is what she is made of. It’s the real world made fantastic by her wonder at its existence.
– Andrei Codrescu, author of Bibliodeath: My Archives (With Life in Footnotes) Box Edition
