The Barbarian Parade: Pursuit of the Un-American Dream Paperback – January 1, 2004
...a brave and buoyant bildungsroman...fiery, hell-bent prose...a picaresque novel of and for our time. -- Robin Lippincott, author of Mr. Dalloway
...by turns sensuous, carnal, tender, and often brutal...a striking debut for a novelist of daring creativity and passion. -- Edmund White
...fearless first novel...a compelling and memorable read -- Sena Jeter Naslund, author of Ahab's Wife
...simultaneously hilarious and heart-breaking, evocative but never nostalgic, touching but never sentimental...not only poetic, but a great page-turner. -- Silas House, author of Clay's Quilt and The Cool of the Day
[T]he debut of an important and vigorous new voice in fiction...it's real, and moving, and true. -- Bret Lott, author of Jewel
