"This should be the manifesto of school children in every private institution." 
-- Jc McCallister, 
Publisher of Bygawd Books.

"It's a place with names and tradition, with bibles and racism, learning about drugs and love, defending and losing belief before looking back and flipping it the bird."
-- Paul E. Loher,

"Blunt and offensive. Artistic and realistic. God loves rich kids... portrays a bottom-of-the-barrel perspective on life in an old-fashion-minded society that will really dialate the pupils, secure your lips, and expand the universe just that much further."  

"A mess of yuppiebilly pseudo-suede-shoes."

"Robert Louis Henry isn’t even writing, or doesn’t want you to know he is; that is, when he isn’t writing what’s easily identifiable as some very well-crafted contemporary poetry, it’s hard to find a name for what exactly it is he’s doing, apart from the obvious “prose”. All of which sounds like there are a hundred different ways in which it couldn’t possibly “work”, just like any other great and 'impossible' idea.

"Robert Louis Henry is waiting to be stared down by God.  Snarling and growling, half-depressed, despairing at the absurdity of his very existence, nevertheless there’s a bouncy joy inside him.  A joy at simply being alive and able to wonder, doubt and philosophize.

RLH wants to be loved most of all.  And he wants God to do it...On the Read-O-Meter, which ranges from 1 star (bland) to 5 stars (zesty), God loves rich kids earns 5 stars.  Simply because it’s so darn good..." (read more at Basil & Spice)
