From the Jane Austen room at The Sylvia Beach Hotel: “Outing the Mermaid is Jane Austen with sex.” – Goody Cable, hotel proprietor
“The prose is poetry, yet completely unselfconscious, and that ain’t easy.” –Robert Page Jones, Screenwriter & Novelist
“Medlock’s ripping yarn will be on my shelf next to Amy Tan, Thomas McGuane, Wallace Stegner and Barbara Kingsolver.” – Peter Tavernise, artist & foundation leader
“I had to shake myself mentally when I was done with Outing the Mermaid, to force myself to emerge from the world the book created. It was a very intense experience.” – Joan Brunwasser, Editor, OpEdNews
“I started Outing the Mermaid last night in my favorite reading venue … the bathtub. All the water ran out and I was still sitting there reading. It’s that good. Brilliant.” – Wynne Crombie, writer & educator
“Medlock’s protagonist is a female, modern-day, Odysseus. Tested time and time again, her complex and varied adventures are not about conquering kingdoms or blinding Cyclops–they are about learning how to live one’s own life with the utmost authenticity and integrity. Such riches as these are beyond measure.” – Susan S. Scott, Jungian psychotherapist & author
