About Pretenders:

"Jeff Friedman writes, ‘somebody snuffs a crow / prophesying a century of famine.’ Well, Jeff better watch his back, because it’s prophecy—goofy, fabulist, allegorical, comic, hauntingly honest, and grave as hell—that Friedman’s up to in Pretenders. This is his best book yet."
—Ross Gay
