Praise for Under the Dusty Moon:


"Micky and Victoria careen through their loving, raunchy, and rocky relationship. Sex, drugs, and rock and roll all rolled up in an appealing package."  — Booklist


"Readers will cringe at Vic’s failures and cheer for her triumphs." — Kirkus Reviews


"A well-crafted portrait of the punk rock potential found in unlikely sources." 

— National Post


"Sutherland nails the unglamorous reality of the city’s sweltering summers with refreshingly true-to-life characters." — Globe and Mail 


"Provides intimate glimpses into a mother and daughter's unorthodox shifting relationship set against the particular hum of the city." — Quill & Quire
