Reviews

"Riveting . . . a first-class first novel . . . highlighted by superior writing, dialogue that rings true, and a highly believable background."--Associated Press

"God's Pocket sings, snarls, mugs, wisecracks, buys you a drink, steals your wallet, and takes you home to meet the folks."--Richard Price "My own favorite among Mr. Dexter's work remains God's Pocket, which I continue to admire for its rich, well-nigh Dickensian mixture of verisimilitude, real-life absurdity, horror and romance."--Robert Stone, The New York Times Book Review

"Rollicking . . . a tough Philadelphia neighborhood comes to life in these pages."--Playboy
