"The typewriter idea got my attention, but the writing kept me hooked. Franki's stories have soul and wit, but are also made of real flesh and blood. They're pithy and addictive. My heart has been Smith Corona-ed."
-- Drew Dernavich, cartoonist for The New Yorker
"Sometimes I run across a poem that makes me second guess my opinion on poetry. It could be a line in the poem that impresses me. Or a person in the poem that makes me wonder what he'd be like in another situation. Or a relationship that makes me want to know if it worked out. Or a memory I have while reading the poem. For me, Piano Rats by Franki Elliot had all of the above."
-- Shamontiel L. Vaughn, Chicago Tribune.
