Editorial Reviews

Review

Michael Cart Editor of "Love & Sex" In this searing yet soaring story of a deeply troubled boy named America, E. R. Frank fulfills the promise of her brilliant first novel, Life Is Funny. Like life itself, America is about a little bit of everything, yet Frank -- with some magical combination of art and urgency -- brings it all together. In its unsparing honesty and respect for its readers, this story of one boy's life is at once harrowing and haunting, intellectually exciting and emotionally satisfying. America is an absolutely unforgettable character and America, his story, takes place at the intersection of life and literature.

Chris Crutcher 2000 Edwards Award winner I don't know which is better, the story or the storyteller. Either way the reader wins. This is one rugged treat.
