"A masterpiece of experimental fiction. Cannon takes his readers through the darkest shadows of America's cultural history, and the primary tour guide is Mills Loomis Mills, who is one of the most memorable characters I've ever come across in fiction. Cannon's use of multiple points of views is perfect—stirring, frightening and—it should not go unmentioned—frequently hilarious. This is truly fiction on the edge." —Don De Grazia
