“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
