Pretty amazing review of NOTHING OR NEXT TO NOTHING over at THE COLLAGIST.
Thanks very much to the fine folks over there and especially to PAULA BOMER for the excellent review.

Here's an excerpt:
"Whether you agree with Derek or not, he's a thinking man, a thinking man numbing his pain and disconnect with the world with drugs, doing the best he can to provide for himself and his loved ones and offering us a bird's eye view of some difficult circumstances, not all of which are beyond his control. What will happen to Derek? What happens to his sister, the biggest thing at the center of his heart? It's very much worth reading the minutia of vileness, indeed, important and relevant to do so, to find out."
