CROW Quarterly review: "Exploding atomic bombs in the Nevada desert in the 50's must have been surreal, but imagine the personalities involved: eccentric scientists building bombs and theologies, ambitious military men building armies and careers, slick politicians, enlisted pawns. If that's not weird enough for you, sprinkle in flying Cadillac bombs, escalators to parallel universes, avenging angels, orgasmic blimp rides through hell, and train rides through the heavens. This work is cinematic in its sweep and nuclear grandeur, but it's also put together very much like a film, composed of hundreds of sharp, telling scenes. In the grand tradition of Pynchon and Heller, the book is an irreverent collage of absurdity and symbolism."
