"In this fascinating novel, the author has intimately depicted the whirling frenzy of a soul with little insight into itself, then put that soul through the sharp-bladed blender of calamity..." --Bruce Benderson, from the Introduction
The details are familiar: familial-and other-dysfunctional relationships, religion, drugs, prostitution, even murder, but Stoddard's voice is fresh and honest, holding onto our attention and growing empathy. --Tsipi Keller, author of Jackpot
"[Stoddard's] prose is beautiful. His characters are real...Christian White will captivate you. You will want to help him, you will become angry with him, and you will cheer him for small but meaningful accomplishments."

Top Customer Reviews
The background of Christian's life, which eventually explains the emotional baggage he carries, is skillfully told in flashbacks throughout the length of the book. This is an extremely dark, emotionally raw and difficult story to read, but the first-time author manages to engage the reader's (perhaps morbid) curiosity about the young man and his future, and paints a noteworthy example of how childhood experiences can lead to serious issues in adulthood. Explicit sexual content and graphic details of drug use may be disturbing to some, but are used well in the context of the story of a young man who knows where his life is heading, but feels incapable of stopping it. Well-written, and I will definitely look for more from this talented author. Five stars out of five.

family problems, and got involved in every act of depravity. But it was a story/plot that caught me turning pages till the very end.
