"The Venice of Nietzke's book is like a hologram, jumping out of the pages in vivid and three-dimensional detail, a cast of characters so believable you can almost smell the stale wine on the bum's breath, or feel the aching emptiness in the life of an oceanfront-cafe waitress. Nietzke makes you feel good about the durability of the human spirit." --LA Reader

"Nietzke's prose evokes Joan Didion in its clarity and vision...An absolute jewel of a book, studded with sensitivity, grace and humor." --Publishers Weekly

"Nietzke lovingly salvages the details of wrecked lives and builds them into a careful portrait of a wholly different California." --London Times Literary Supplement

"Remarkable..Nietzke brings to her observations such warmth of imagination that her characters not only live on the page, but create a whole, vivid world that we can all enter and move around in. Nietzke's clean, strong prose and honest intelligence make it [a book] to be re-read and treasured for its sadness, its humour, and its recognisable truth." --London Daily Telegraph
