"Smart and funny . . . a biting satirical take on the intersection of art and commerce, integrity and facade. . . . A send up of all things cool." --"Los Angeles Times" "Fit to be devoured over a weekend." --"Rolling Stone" "A gentle and hip romantic comedy [that] breezes through LA's iconoclastic anonymity with a refreshing sincerity." --"The Independent" "His best since" Gun, With Occasional Music" . . . what makes the book sing are Lethem's accounts of what happens when a crowd on the street hears a band inside a building . . . or when for a moment four musicians understand each other better than anyone of them understands him or herself." --Greil Marcus," Interview"
