American Purgatorio is a triumphant American picaresque, a thrilling quest poem in the indiginous form of a road novel.

- Benjamin Kunkel


  A book that swims amongst the deep unknnown but is alive with an understated wisdom, humor, and tenderness.

- I-D Magazine

I have just read this wonderful book and I feel like I am floating on blue air along the shoreline. It is a fresh, light, deep, sad, funny, moving, trippy dream of a novel.

- Tim Pears



A beautiful, haunting, original book.
