"If you're a newcomer to Portland, it's the letter home you're too busy to write yourself. If you're an old-time resident, it's a look into what those green-haired, skinny-jeaned young people are up to."

"This book he offers great little insights into such things as rain, Portland’s nicknames, food carts, bands, Portland drivers, strip clubs, tattoos, tater tots, snow, bikes, beer and much more.

Really, you should just read it."

Alexander Barrett is one of the best writer/artists/musicians out there. I love his older stuff. I just ordered this book and I can't wait to read it.

"Is This is Portland the best book ever written? No. Is it the best book ever written about Portland, OR by a guy from Vermont? You bet your ass!"
