Review:

"Lebert explores the limits of trust, blending broad humor and sudden bursts of melodrama while maintaining a delicately balanced tension. . . . [He] does a lot with a few words." -The New York Times Book Review

"Lebert [is] the Wunderkind of pop-literature." -The Daily Mirror (Berlin)

"Filled with. . . youthful fatalism that is counterbalanced with wild swings of elation."-The Advocate (Baton Rouge)

"Lebert manages to portray with beautiful images the disappointment of needing tremendous strength for things which others find to be an easy game." -The World (Berlin)
