“Anyone who has been caught in the crash of the bubble, who has ever been forced to read Lacan, or who can simply laugh at one's own failings, will be cheering Cal on through his gun-waving adventure.” -- The Critical Flame: A Journal of Literature & Culture.

“...a fun thrill ride that is quick to develop and sure to satisfy a hungry mind.

“...a poignant, serious study that never forsakes humor.” --Ampersand Review

“Even though every single character in this book commits at least one act that should make me hate them, I ended up falling for all of them and wishing them happiness in the crazy world they made for themselves.” -- Reading is my Superpower

“...a cleverly-orchestrated story of bone-dry wit. The author skewers everyone from the Berkeley Left to the Gun Toting Right” -- Harlots' Sauce, The First Non-Partisan Magazine on the Net.
