Praise for The Atheist Wore Goat Silk
"Journey’s conceit is the Confessional mode in which each memory is her performance, a rebellious-booted rockabilly New Southern Belle dropping acid under a dogwood or getting the blue tattoo of a sweet-potato barcode on her arm or up late remembering to feed a stray fox, chewing her fried chicken wing corsage." — excerpt from a review by Miguel Murphy
