"hyper, delirious, and weird. ...essential reading." - Paris Review

"The United States’ only worthwhile newspaper... an ebullient and funny and devastatingly smart project." - Grace Ambrose

"Mothers News is the Velvet Underground of newspapers- they didn't sell a lot of copies but everyone that got one started their own newspaper." - Jones Chandler
