“Hillary Johnson’s Physical Culture will peel you down to the quick and let you see what lives there. It is th eisngle most shattering novel I’ve read since Jerzy Kosinski’s The Painted Bird.” --Harry Crews

“Hillary Johnson in the 1980s was a writer so far ahead of her time practically no one understood what she was doing,” Madison Smartt Bell wrote in the Huffington Post in 2011. “Physical Culture describes levels of self-mutilation that put it over the top at a time when ‘transgressive’ fiction was supposedly in vogue.”
