"Ben Vendetta honestly brings back an era when a stunning, now-legendary post-punk/indie rock scene was blazing in Britain. He slyly evokes this in a coming-of-college-age story of throwing off the influence (and snares) of normal Middle American life by immersing himself right into the thick of the NME/Melody Maker/Sounds-fed maelstrom in England itself.” -Jack Rabid, The Big Takeover 
“Wivenhoe Park wrenched me back to a mid-80s Britain where punk was dead and alternative/goth ruled. If birds, booze and Bunnymen are your thing, as they are mine, then dust off your Sisters of Mercy LPs, squeeze into your Meat Is Murder t-shirt and enjoy the ride.” 
-Dave Hawes (Catherine Wheel)

"This is classic coming of age stuff. Drew makes friends, hangs out with bands, dates inappropriate girls, takes drugs and a whole lot more. But what makes Wivenhoe Park such a joy is that Ben writes in a very engaging way … If you ever enjoyed High Fidelity, went to a British University in the mid 80s or are counting the days until Cherry Red reissues the legendary C86 compilation (as a two disc set!) you’ll love this."-PopJunkie
