"McDonell renders Manhattan's cosseted Upper East Side with both the casual authority of an insider an the wry distance of an observer...impressive."
- Jennifer Egan, The New York Times Book Review
"McDonell is an authentic talent...his novel will endure as a snapshot of his generation as surely as Less Than Zero did of the eighties."
-Stephanie Merritt, The Observer (London)
