""A mad work of comic genius, combining symbols and myths from ancients and moderns, white culture and black, juxtaposing heartbreaks with farce to make up a narrative that has never, never been told before."" - Carolyn See, Los Angeles Times Book Review
""[A] marvelous first novel."" - New York Times Book Review
""Very funny, sometimes excruciatingly so."" - Publishers Weekly
""Who could meld baseball and jazz with the most wistful male myth of all, the Icarus myth, remembering that Daedalus really did do it: He flew."" - Los Angeles Times Book Review
