Praise for Between the Bridge and the River

Often says more about love and life in one paragraph than some books say in 100 pages. After reading it, you will know Craig Ferguson is not a talk-show host moonlighting as an author; it might be the other way around.
— Mitch Albom, #1 New York Times bestselling author of TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE
An unequivocal whoop of enthusiasm... Buy this book. Read it. You’ll thank me.
— Lawrence Block, author of A WALK AMONG THE TOMBSTONES
Profane on its surface, ethical at its core, and always fun.
— Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)
Particularly sharp and funny... a caustic yet ebullient picaresque that approaches the sacred by way of the profane.
— Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
A talk show host who can hold his own as a literary storyteller... [An] impressive debut novel.
— The Los Angeles Times
Witty, furiously paced, and frequently hysterical.
— People Magazine
Filled with many surprises.
— The New York Times
Fresh, ribald, incisive, and a fine read.
— The Baltimore Sun
