Praise For How I Learned to Hate in Ohio: A Novel

“A sharp debut...observant and piercing set pieces about suburban malaise and economic drift punctuated with starker themes... MacLean distinguishes himself with his voice — that is, Barry's voice, at first sarcastic and distant, then earnest and ultimately heartbroken.”

— Minneapolis Star-Tribune
