Salon, Telegraph-Journal Review

Are You Ready to Be Lucky? is a novel that looks like a short story collection and tastes like a volume of haiku. With artfully drawn nature as backdrop, Nixon gives us Roslyn, Duncan and Floyd, characters colliding like pinballs, just trying to keep themselves from clattering down the hole. . . . Lonely and misguided, the main characters and their assorted sidekicks keep getting thwacked by life but they roll on anyway, often slipping down the same alleys and getting thwacked again, but always rolling on.”
