“This is a terrific story, beautifully written, and completely enthralling.”—Dorothy Allison
“I admire the sentences, the clarity of mind, and characters who catch and keep our attention. Bob Dylan sings about a journey ‘all the way from New Orleans to Jerusalem…’ as way of apotheizing, scrutinizing, recognizing the world we live in. Laura Scott is on the way.”–Alan Cheuse, Song of Slaves in the Desert
“A story as hot, sticky, and dangerous as Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, seen through an imagination as kaleidoscopic as Kelly Link’s.”–Steve Himmer, The Bee-Loud Glade
“Something hazy is happening in Fat City. Laura Ellen Scott dials up loads of laughs amid the local color and NOLA cuisine in this madcap romp of a novel where last wishes come true, Elvis is back under newly orange clouds, coffee cups are bottomless, and street punks wear capes.”–Richard Peabody, editor Gargoyle Magazine
