"It speaks well of both Jonny and his creator that the result is this good, a moving, entertaining novel that is both poignant and pointed — a sweet, sad skewering of the celebrity industry...to create out of that entitled adolescent voice a being of true longing and depth, and then to make him such a devastating weapon of cultural criticism — these are feats of unlikely virtuosity, like covering Jimi Hendrix on a ukulele...you’d have to be made of triple platinum not to ache for Jonny Valentine."
—Jess Walter, The New York Times Book Review (cover review and Editors' Choice
)

"Sad-funny, sometimes cutting...This is what makes 'The Love Song' more than a scabrous sendup of American celebrity culture; it’s also a poignant portrait of one young artist’s coming of age."
—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
