"Like the era it celebrates and critiques, Josh Stallings' Young Americans is excessive, brash, morally complex, and full of wonderful freaks, wicked cars, and great music. Get down on it." - Charlie Huston
"A tremendous book -- tough, funny, totally convincing, and even (in places) sweet. It's good enough to make the book's patron saint, David Bowie, proud. Josh Stallings is an original." - Tim Hallinan
"Young Americans is a stone cold blast. Josh Stallings has created a heist novel that captures the glam/disco era of the 1970s and inhabited it with dynamite characters. This book rocks." - Johnny Shaw
"Drugs, guns, cars, and sex! This wild ride back to the 70's careens along so fast that you brace yourself for the crash that's bound to come--but like an Elmore Leonard master caper, nothing is what its seems, and the reader wins." - Terry Shames
"A wild heist, some sweet and some not-so-sweet love. Young Americans is superb and sexy. Gritty, and yet still lyrical, it's a glimpse over our collective shoulder - and it feels real, feels like this flashy past is just barely behind us, for all the good that it means to move on, and for the all the pangs every generation feels for what's lost that was so very cool." -Jamie Mason
"A blast from start to finish with a heart bigger than a '73 Cadillac. My favorite book of the year." - Thomas Pluck
"A star-spangled disco ball refracting sex, thugs and rock and roll, The Young Americans sparkles and flashes like a glitter-dipped nightstick catching the dawn's early light before kissing you upside the head and sending you into a blissed-out sugar-nap you can take again and again. " - Jedidiah Ayres
