“Reich’s novel is chock full of explosive ideas conveyed with radioactive prose.
His heroine Varyushka Cash makes Lisbeth Salander look like a dimwitted Mary Poppins.
This is dangerous fiction – handle with extreme caution.”
—Isaac Adamson, Edgar Award Finalist, Complication
“Bombshell is great stuff, and James Reich writes like a demon. He invokes figures
as wonderfully diverse as Valerie Solanas and Nancy Reagan’s astrologer as icons
in a supremely bizarre, darkly humorous universe. Varyushka Cash is a heroine for the ages.”
– Mary Dearborn, Mailer: A Biography
and an unforgettable, emotionally resilient and iron-tough heroine, in this politically charged,
indelibly smart, wild and electrifying powerhouse of a book.”
- Emily Rapp, The Still Point of the Turning World
“Like Cormac McCarthy wandering a William Burroughs wasteland while blasting
a riot grrrl mixtape on a scavenged Walkman!”
- S.A. Crary, Kill Your Idols, Director
“Reich is a formidable writer. He brings his characters and events to life with cinematic clarity.
His eye for detail makes even the familiar seem alien. Above all he gives form to the terrifying
invisible nuclear air that envelopes us all. Bombshell is a cautionary tale well told, offered up by
a passionate and supremely gifted new author.”
- Malcolm Mc Neill, Observed While Falling: Bill Burroughs, Ah Pook, and Me
“Defiant, toothsome, and flaming with color, the voice of James Reich is one of the most exciting
to emerge in recent years; he is both something new and something wholly real. If it is possible
for a true underground writer to exist anymore, he is that author. Bombshell is sublime.”
- Stephen E. Andrews, author of 100 Must-Read Science Fiction Novels
“The feminist heroine is a fresh twist on the thriller genre.” —Kirkus
