"Bender's willingness to go deep, to burrow down into what's right and wrong about 21st century America and Americans, is a mirror that draws us in and does not allow us to look away." --Los Angeles Times on Refund
"An engrossing, highly readable memoir in essays about growing up in New York in the 1970s . . . T]his is a tender portrait of family dysfunction." --Booklist
