I admire the sentences, the clarity of mind, and characters who catch and keep our attention. Bob Dylan sings about a journey 'all the way from New Orleans to Jerusalem...' as way of apotheizing, scrutinizing, recognizing the world we live in. Laura Scott is on the way."--Alan Cheuse, Song of Slaves in the Desert
"A story as hot, sticky, and dangerous as Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
, seen through an imagination as kaleidoscopic as Kelly Link's."--Steve Himmer, The Bee-Loud Glade
"Something hazy is happening in Fat City. Laura Ellen Scott dials up loads of laughs amid the local color and NOLA cuisine in this madcap romp of a novel where last wishes come true, Elvis is back under newly orange clouds, coffee cups are bottomless, and street punks wear capes."--Richard Peabody, editor Gargoyle Magazine
