From Scientific American
"It is one of the books that reveal their quality from the first line. On every page there is that immediacy all good writing has." -- V. S. Naipaul
"Nasty and lyrical, a curse that sounds suspiciously like a prayer, this outlandish hybrid of Irish-American letters is still armed and dangerous after thirty years.
