RaveSan Francisco Chronicle[An] intimate self-portrait ... A powerful meditation on destruction, loss and healing ... A beautiful novel about Southern California. The prose is swift and luminous, the dialogue is note-perfect, and the flashback descriptions of modern Los Angeles are beautifully written ... Very few postapocalyptic novels have the literary qualities of this one ... Yoon is willing to ask what \'the End of the World\' really means — and provide the reader with a thoughtful, heartfelt answer.
RaveSan Francisco ChronicleThe instant spark of attraction between Sol and Elsie and the romance that unfolds between them is very sweet, very intimate and very, very queer. In general Sol is a great character, and his voice is the core of the novel. Like Fellman’s previous work, this is a memoir written from a unique point of view, and every part of Sol’s identity is important ... Dead Collections is a...literary achievement, a book so firmly anchored in space and time, and so rooted in queer and trans intimacy that it achieves [a] hyperreal quality.
