The Atlantic Ocean Reviews
"Starred Review. A brilliant essayist, [O'Hagan] constructs sentences that pierce like pinpricks." - Publishers Weekly
"Starred Review. Stupendously unflinching, bursting with possibility" - Booklist
"A mixed bag with some very good lines (if often spoken by others) jumbled up with some rather stale ephemera." - Kirkus
"...at his most impressive, O'Hagan demonstrates that fiction can compel us to redefine reality, as when hurricane Katrina, tossing hotels and casinos through the air and wrapping chandeliers in Spanish moss, transforms the grotesque fantasies of Southern Gothic into 'a form of social realism'. Lies dribble from the slack mouths of politicians; if we want to know the truth about the false world we live in, we need to consult the writers of fiction." - The Guardian
