“Stunning…whatever heartache or humor you find within these pages is embodied in her shimmering prose, distilled to the bone.” –Nick Flynn, author of Another Bullshit Night in Suck City

“Suspenseful, funny, painful, and poetic…” –Janet Fitch, author of White Oleander and Paint It Black

“Nami Mun is easily one of the most important new talents in American fiction.” –Alexander Chee, author of Edinburgh

“A starkly beautiful book, shot through with grace and lit by an off-hand street poetry. Nami Mun takes a cast of junkies and runaways and brings them fiercely and frankly to life.” –Peter Ho Davies, author of The Welsh Girl
