"Her insight into the minds of young people, especially, make me reminiscent of my own youth and cognizant of what a hard thing it is to be young."
—Cynthia Thayer, author of A Brief Lunacy
"Nasty, funny, witty, biting, perceptive … The themes recall The Great Gatsby and the whole issue of class in America. A major theme is that the very rich or the moderately rich are different from you and me, that wealth and money inspire a certain kind of carelessness. Miriam has a definite eye to class gradations within that community."
—Burton Hatlen, National Poetry Foundation
