"Novelist Ward (Shedding Skin) presents a collection of previously published pieces from his freelance days in the 1960s-70s. Ward's articles are interesting. Essential reading for those interested in new journalism." --Library Journal, February 2012
"This collection of essays is sure to appeal to fans of [Tom Wolfe and Hunter S. Thompson]. Ward tells fascinating stories about fascinating people, but unlike traditional journalism, the author is a key element in his stories. For fans of first-person journalism, this makes great reading." --Booklist, March 2012
"Terrific anthology." --The Daily Beast
