Gender-defying iO Wright mixes such a high-octane cocktail of radiant ink, wild anecdotes, bad behavior, and gritty truths -topped off with an unexpected tonic of transcendence-it could stagger Charles Dickens, electrify Maxim Gorky, and cause Jane Austen to walk around in army boots -- Tom Robbins It's already a rare and wonderful thing to have a great story-but a unique and compelling voice to tell it with is even rarer. With Darling Days, iO Tillett Wright takes us right to where great storytelling lives. A terrific, terrific book, filled with great characters, set in a time and place, the pre-gentrified Lower East Side of Manhattan, that spins farther away from memory with every passing day -- Anthony Bourdain A startlingly good debut -- Frances Wilson Oldie
