"Really funny and weird...”
--Brooks Whelan, "Saturday Night Live"
This book will get you out of your melancholia and your heart might just go Boom as well.
--Jennifer Kathleen Gibbons, Stereo Embers Magazine
"This book is literally filled with magic and the laughter it provokes hides real heart. Blending echoes of Jane Austen and Bill Shakespeare with Steve Austin and Billy Wilder, it makes an enchanted forest of LA and finds poetry in the soap opera technicolor of the Hollywood dream."
--Justin Currie (Del Amitri)
"Alex Green's The Heart Goes Boom is a total kick--a witty lark of a novel that could be summed up as The Odyssey re-imagined by the team of Dave Barry and Henry Rollins, but sweeter and crazier than that."
--Jason Warburg, author of My Heart Sings The Harmony
"A hundred wonderful images and sentences--well, many more than that. Totally hilarious and frankly moving at the same time: which is my definition of what makes a good book good, and a great book great, like this one. Alex Green's sensibility is so rare, so smart, so strong. His narrative is powerful, the characters, memorable to the point of indelibility."
--Joe DiPrisco, author of The Pope Of Brooklyn and Subway to California
“Great book. Funny, smart, good spirited and features the kind of old school bit-comedy
that makes a comic novel boil and bubble. This was the summer stunner that I didn't know would save my stupid life. I hope Green writes five more novels…”
--Jesse Michaels, author of Whispering Bodies
