SF Chronicle says, 'he is a better writer than most mainstream novelists, and is unsurpassed in one of the novelist's hardest tasks: getting inside his characters' heads.' UPI says, 'He can capture a person's essence in a few words and his ability to write dialogue that captures the way people speak is matched only by George V. Higgins.' New York Times says, 'The talk is so true and tough and dirty that it sounds as if it had been wiretapped.' "Well, Marie had quit working her two machines now with the bell ringing and those fifty-cent pieces still coming out, letting up for a few seconds then pouring out again, some spilling on the floor there were so many. Teddy grabbed and empty cup and got down there to pick them up. He set the cup next to her purse." "Marie had three grown sons. She had come on a bus from Harrisburg where she was a checkout girl in a supermarket; they were going home at nine. Out on the Boardwalk Teddy told her she had just enough time to win another pot. Wasn't it a beautiful night after all that rain? He told her when they were little they used to go under the Boardwalk and look up through the cracks at girls in dresses. They called it stargazing."
