We all have heroes. I would never want to imagine Tom Waits going to therapy or Bukowski running a 10k. In my heart, Mishka Shubaly will always be spilled over the bar next to me and playing on the jukebox of my soul.”

“Here is a young writer fully in possession of an immense talent.”
– Caitlin Flanagan, the ATLANTIC
“There’s no storyteller like Mishka Shubaly—hardcore on every emotional level, he scares the bejezus out of me, especially when he’s cracking me up. I Swear I’ll Make It Up to You is a brilliantly toxic confession awash in booze, bodily fluids, and the shock of accidentally turning into a human being, against your will.” – Rob Sheffield, ROLLING STONE
“Shubaly’s writing grabs you by your neck, his thumb fingering the delicate pulse by your throat. He’s going to tell you about himself, whether you can stand it or not, and the reason you can’t stop reading? It’s because he also seems to know a thing or two about your inner life. Picture Charles Bukowski with a greater understanding of women, holding a bass guitar. You laugh out loud in a crowded Coffee Bean, glancing around to make sure that no one’s heard you, and then a moment later he tells you something you know to be so painfully true that before you’ve even stopped laughing, you bleed for a moment, internally.”

“A beaming ray of jet-black sunshine…”
