“Angela Sloan is a dazzler…the novel never loses its place, the destination is clear, and even the human absurdity is believable under Whorton’s talented authority. Whorton has masterfully juggled questing oddballs before, in his two previous novels Approximately Heaven and Frankland…” —Matt Baker, Oxford American
