"From the madhouse, Johnny Truant's mother writes some of the
most tender, chilling, faux-psychotic writing I've ever read. This
dangerous, lucid, confused but very eloquent lady . . . is playful,
apologetic, crazed, paranoid, self-abasing, cunning--a tigress with
a gift for gab."
--Robert Kelly, The New York Times Book Review
"The Whalestoe Letters are dazzling."
--Steven Moore, The Washington Post "Danielewski has a songwriter's heart."
--John Freeman, Time Out New York
