Críticas:

" The only man more honest than a man without sin is a man without shame. In "Thick as Thieves," Steve Geng explores his tumultuous life and poetic relationship with his sister with a hard won clarity and a resigned grace. Candidly unsentimental but powerfully moving, Geng's tribute to his sister is one of the most frank and insightful depictions of familial devotion-- and failings-- that I' ve ever read." -- Josh Kilmer Purcell, author of "I Am Not Myself Today""" " You'll never forget your vicarious joyride through Steve Geng' s world, where jail, junk, jazz, larceny and sex are the dominant themes, and art and love are the variations. Geng has committed and survived any number of crimes, but his thirst for life, lively prose and clear-eyed analysis of his own story will have you rooting for him, no matter what." -- Elizabeth Gaffney, author of "Metropolis""" " Along with ample evidence of Stephan Geng' s honesty, clarity, and courage-- and, let' s not forget, occasional depravity-- "Thick as Thieves "demonstrates that there were two writers growing up in the same household with pitch-perfect senses of the absurd." -- Mark Singer, author of "Somewhere in America"
