"Joshua Cohen is a blacksmith who heats, hammers, and molds the language to sharpest, most precise pointsnot for the sake of craft, but to tell a troubled story about troubled life in the twenty-first century. This is a dazzling and poignant book."
"theMystery.doc may seem capacious but is actually sly, shy, and precise, and Matthew McIntosh is ambitious in the good sense: he attempts something new, with new vitality, and at that, absolutely succeeds."
"The state of Louisiana is the world's incarceration capital and Zachary Lazar, a resident of New Orleans, is a world-class novelist, who brings humility and sensitivity to this new book. The urgency of Lazar's subject, combined with his graceful submission to it, makes Vengeance incredibly timely, and also timeless in its value as art."
