What people are saying about The Walking Tanteek:

“A rollicking, witty, fast-paced first novel about middle-aged Maggie Prentice and her attempts to understand faith, humanity, death and love. From the first sentence this novel grabs you and never lets go. Maggie offers up a slew of brilliant verbal gymnastics as she navigates her wild, weird world. She is a character you won't soon forget living in a novel that is truly engaging.”— Michelle Berry, author of This Book Will Not Save Your Life

“A strange and wonderful book imbued with a touch of genius that seeks and grants both shelter and love for the wayward child in all of us.” — David Adams Richards, author of Incidents in the Life of Markus Paul
