'Holohan's writing seems informed by Frank McCourt, Flann O'Brien, and both Kingsley and Martin Amis, but he possesses his own distinct voice...this impressive debut is highly recommended.' - Jim Dwyer, University of California., libraryjournal.com 'The Brothers' Lot is unforgettable.' - Linda L. Richards, January Magazine
