one reviewer observed: "Doug Fowler illuminates a poignant world on the margins where fish-moths, a perambulating cat, and False Lupines rustle among the broken asphalt, and a pie-carousel lurches into rotation in a hushed café."
Mary Carey, the Daily Hampshire Gazette

forward from the book: "The average density of the universe is something like 0.0000000000000000000000000001 kilograms per cubic meter (10-28 kg/m3). One cubic meter of granite weighs some 2700 kilograms. This book's density is 550 kg/m3. Your body weighs in at about 1100 kg/m3, a density that is some 10 million trillion trillion times that of the universe. Our condensation from the void would seem to be the exception; not the rule." Douglas A. Fowler
