Praise for Redheaded Blues

"Meir Ribalow understands women Redheaded Blues is a terrific ride with a compelling, complicated female who will wrangle your heart. Don't miss it."
- Sharon Pomerantz, author of Rich Boy

"Equal parts Billy the Kid and Lucinda Williams, Casey Cassidy is an iconic American heroine in the classical mode-wide-eyed, hopeful, wise, wounded, reckless, savvy, and really, really good with her weapon-or she would be, if there was a precedent for her. Redheaded Blues may be a Tall Tale, but the story it's telling is closer to your own than you might expect, and it will hurt you-sweetly-and it will make you laugh-often, and it will remind you why we tell tales, tall or otherwise, in the first place."
- Glen Hirshberg, author of American Morons and The Book of Bunk

"Redheaded Blues is a witty, whimsical "picaresque" in the grand tradition of Fielding and Defoe, but with a thoroughly modern sensibility and a kickass, yet eminently lovable and utterly unforgettable heroine who will break your heart as fast as she steals it. M.Z. Ribalow is one of the great voices of American literature today."
- Juliet Grey, author of the acclaimed Marie Antoinette trilogy for Random House
