Reviews for Psychic Outlaws...
Mary Anna Pomonis called Psychic Outlaws "astonishing" on Artlurker.com.
Art writer Shana Dambrot wrote on Flavorpill, "LA-based artist, editor, and author Annie Buckley has optioned her novel, Psychic Outlaws — but not for a screenplay, for an ambitious group show starring about 20 of LA's most recognized emerging artists."
In an interview with the author, Art writer Gabriel Cifarelli wrote of Pyschic Outlaws: "While the novel operates conceptually to question the limits of the Art Object, it also works simply as a novel, and it happens to be a very good novel at that." Cifarelli goes on to write that, though experimental, Psychic Outlaws is "quite engrossing.”
Amazon.com reader Jesyca writes, "This dreamy fictional narrative of a woman suffering from chronic fatigue as she investigates a surreal mental facility for women, is a unique reading experience. Playing with language, tense and visual themes, the writer creates a dreamscape for the reader so deeply engaging that at times I had to shake my own head to make sure I wasn't hallucinating along with the protagonist. I found the story moving and especially poignant in regards to how women process emotion and memory. As a fan of magical realism, I especially enjoyed the surreal references as they painted a powerful picture of a mental institute where women seek release from the stress of modern life (part mental facility/part spa) and discover a world of psychic revelation. I felt myself torn between wanting to go there and desperately wanting the heroine to escape. A terrific and unusual read, I recommend this book!"
