    " Easily one of the worst books I've ever read. The author seems to think that by repeating various iteration of Hobo Vampire Junkie Sluts that the words will somehow gain meaning. There is no plot, the characters are given names and repeatedly called hobo vampire junkie sluts, but they are all entirely interchangeable. A complete and thorough waste of my time. "

    " Pretty awesome. Made me think of Lydia Lunch, Kathy Acker, some Angela Carter (Passion of New Eve specif), Lisa Carver. If she could harness some of this visionary-ness with a bit of narrative, it would be astonishing. As it is, it's too rich and dense with incredible imagery, and that became numbing and kind of a slog by the end. But I could still see myself rereading it, or parts of it. "

    " Hellllo William S. urrough's creepy stepdaughter.Synopsis:Set in the Pacific Northwest in the 90s. Part of a roaming band of hobo vampire junkies, the nameless narrator staggers down the aisles of Safeways and 7-Elevens, in and out of punk rock shows, and through the woods along the highway of death as she searches for her lost foster sister.Much could be said about the mind-blowing, rambling, stream-of-consciousness writing in this novel--Krilanovich clearly knows what she's doing. Two stars for killer writing that completely sucked me in. Unfortunately, she was unable to keep my attention. About half-way through I realized the story wasn't going anywhere, and my attention slowed. y the time I reached the end of her race to the non-conclusiony conclusion, I was sad and kind of annoyed.
