Praise for The Girl Who Ate Kalamazoo:


“Darrin Doyle’s­The Girl Who Ate Kalamazoo­is wildly out there, but its message about family dysfunction is achingly real.”

--DailyCandy.com, Best New Winter Reads Pick

­


“And the writing is excellent: Doyle is a master of the turn of the phrase and makes up analogies and draws connections in unexpected ways… It's an imaginative and remarkable story, spooled out at just the right pace.”

--The Hungry Brain

­


“…relentlessly inventive…”

--Publisher’s Weekly

­


“Buy or borrow this book; you won’t be sorry.”

--Manhattan Mercury
­


Praise for Revenge of the Teacher’s Pet: A Love Story:


“…odd yet endearing…”

“…an original tale that earns its readers’ trust, and breaks their hearts a little in the process.”

--New York Times Book Review

­


Revenge of the Teacher’s Pet is one of the funniest, most satirical books to come out in years.”

“Mr. Portwit…is one of the great anti-heroes of American literature — on a par with Alexander Portnoy and Holden Caulfield.”

“It’s better than most of the books that don’t fall through the cracks at the big publishing houses. It’s as if David Sedaris wrote a literary novel.”

--TheAdvocate.com

­


“Darrin Doyle…handles a difficult is-it-funny-or-just-disturbing tone with remarkable dexterity (which is what allows it to ultimately be funny, and not just tragic), and his ability to make characters both types and individuals is noteworthy”

“Bold and edgy…”

“…this is a dark comedy that also has us questioning the ‘normalcy’ of our own daily existence, and will make you think twice before making assumptions about what’s going on in the homes and minds of your neighbors.”

“It’s a book like none I’ve ever read, and as tough and gritty as it sometimes is, like life, I’m left feeling satisfied.”

--Manhattan Mercury
