Critical acclaim for Richard Grayson’s earlier books: “Grayson shows a sense of humor and appreciation of the weird. This writer is not afraid to take risks, and he can be very funny indeed…A versatile, interesting experimenter…Grayson knows New York City, where many of his stories are set, like the back of his hand…Compulsively talky and engagingly disjunctive.” – Publishers Weekly “The incessant familiarity of the writer’s secret self makes his world entertaining and bizarre.
