Reviews

Bone...redefines the young modern anti-hero...Banks' ear is perfectly attuned to teenage vernacular.... Rule of the Bone has its own culture and language, and Bone is sure to become a beloved character for generations. As with Holden Caulfield, we wish we could save Bone, but we come to hope that his purity of vision may somehow save us. -- San Francisco Chronicle Rule of the Bone is a work of can-do genius. It has the good heavy-metal drive of basement rock bands. It's great, self-conscious pop. -- New York magazine
