"Brutally gorgeous, triumphantly lyrical, and unmistakably brilliant.  Donald Rawley makes myth of our contemporary lives."
                                          --Kate Braverman

"Rawley's writing blazes unapologetically fecund and startling, like some kind of bird of paradise from Mars.  It is a literary movement in itself."
                                        --Sandra Tsing Loh

"Donald Rawley is the literary equivalent of amyl nitrate.  Reading this searing talent may give you a heart attack, but you'll die with a twisted, sated smile of gratitude on your lips."
                                          --Jerry Stahl,
author of  Permanent Midnight

Review Highlights:  "Even the less polished pieces here are keepers, while the best ones sparkle like jewels."
