"SIRENS is a searing read, an illuminating trip (both metaphorical and literal) into its author’s mind and heart."
- Minneapolis StarTribune
"A HIGH-WIRE ACT THAT FEELS LIKE IT'S UNFOLDING IN REAL TIME. IT PULSES WITH PASSION."
- SAN DIEGO CITYBEAT
"RAW-EDGED AND WHIPPET-THIN... MOHR'S PROSE IS LEAN AND SCRAPPY -- A FEATHERWEIGHT BOXER THAT PACKS A PUNCH."
- LA TIMES
"What sets this book apart is Mohr's unwillingness to traffic in pat notions of redemption: he cleans up, sure. But he also takes pains to remind us that the monster is always lurking, ever-patient, waiting for the right moment to show it's face and seek release."
- Ron Currie, Jr.
"FAST AND FASCINATING AS THE LIFE IT CHRONICLES. IT'S ALSO A BLUEPRINT FOR HOW TO REBUILD A LIFE YOU'VE BURNED DOWN. A PAEAN TO THE REDEMPTIVE POWER OF LOVE AND ART."
- JUSTIN ST. GERMAIN
