"A little masterpiece of late twenieth century literature." East Hampton Star
"Devastatingly funny and sublime... a new classic." The Seattle Stranger
"Ever since I read I Love Dick, I have revered it as one of the most explosive, revealing, lacerating, and unusual memoirs ever committed to the page... I Love Dick is never a comfortable read, and it is by turns exasperating, horrifying, and lurid, but it is never less than genuine, and often completely illuminating about the life of the mind." Rick Moody Post Road
"Tart, brazen and funny... a cautionary tale, I Love Dick raises disturbing but compelling questions about female social behavior, power, control." The Nation
"The biggest art revelation of the year." The New Zealand Listener
"Unexpectedly riveting." BookForum
