Praise for Alex Pugsley
“Delightful, funny and real: The authors have managed to uncover the twisted and often hilarious souls of their characters without a hint of pretense or sentimentality.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Sister-sister, man-man, man-woman relationships are examined with authenticity and readers will experience vicariously these hip, chaotic lives.”—Publishers Weekly
“With more than a passing resemblance to J. D. Salinger, the authors accomplish something like what he did in Fanny and Zooey: to introduce fully two siblings, older and younger, at critical points in their lives … When you finish the book, you might find yourself starting it again.”—Los Angeles Reader
“An intelligent, fresh, witty look at how three twentysomethings live near the end of the 20th century, written in the ironic, sarcastic and sometimes cynical voices that have come to characterize a generation.”—Halifax Chronicle Herald
