DISASTERAMA! has received extraordinary advance critical praise, including:
“This book in your hands is one you could say I’ve waited for, and I’m not alone.” —from the introduction by Alexander Chee, author, How to Write an Autobiographical Novel
“Alvin Orloff’s memoir of San Francisco queers facing the mounting AIDS crisis and freaking, caring, denying, performing, and carrying on is a witty remembrance that avoids cheap sentiment or easy responses.” —Michael Musto, columnist, author, Fork on the Left, Knife in the Back
“No one is cooler than Alvin Orloff, and Disasterama! proves it.” —Andrea Lawlor, author, Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl
“Heartbreaking and hilarious, sexed-up and political, Disasterama is a deeply personal coming-of-age story. – Michelle Tea, author Against Memoir and Modern Tarot
