...a beautiful, horrible, depressing, exhilarating book... -- The Los Angeles Herald-Examiner
...not for the fainthearted, nor can it be appreciated by those who believe that books ought not to grab your guts and twist them...a maelstrom of rhapsodic, horribly beautiful prose...a passionate immediacy and a lyrical extravagance that hamstring criticism... achieves marvelous beauty. -- The New York Times Book Review
The most passionate and eloquent book I've read in years. More than about person or illness, it's a soaring plea for health and the sanity of the world... -- Studs Terkel
