Critical reception

The New Yorker wrote "'Tangerine' is over the top, but it is also endearing and even impressive in the force of its determination to conjure a life more exciting than most lives are."[1]

The New York Times said "At times, 'Tangerine' reads as if it were reverse-engineered from a scholarly paper about suspense fiction. Happily, you can write a satisfying, juicy thriller this way, if not a blazingly original one."[2]
