APOLLO - NIN quote

APOLLO - NIN quote

 

Very beautiful prose, simple yet bright with imagery, and so distinctive that one could mistake no single paragraph for the work of any other writer. Johnson belongs in the tradition of Emily Brontë and Emily Dickinson.

New York Times on Now in November

APOLLO - MWLC quote

APOLLO - MWLC quote

 

‘This crazy, gorgeous family novel is one of the great literary achievements of the twentieth century. I carry it in my head the way I carry childhood memories; the scenes are of such precise horror and comedy that I feel I didn’t read the book so much as live it.’

Jonathan Franzen on The Man Who Loved Children

APOLLO - ADHJ quote

APOLLO - ADHJ quote

 

‘Sam Peckinpah’s version of Billy’s brief life (Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid) is hailed as his masterpiece. But Neider’s book is better, better than any other book on the subject of men, horses and death.’ 

Clive Sinclair on The Authentic Death of Hendry Jones

APOLLO - TLE quote

APOLLO - TLE quote

 

The great forgotten novel of post-war Berlin... The Lost Europeans is both moving and forensic in its portrayal of a shabby and still only partly repaired city: recently divided between East and West but united by a common past of such monstrosity that the most prosaic presences and encounters shriek of murder.' 

Patrick Wright on The Lost Europeans

APOLLO - JD QUOTE

APOLLO - JD QUOTE

 

 

‘The Day of Judgment is that now improbable gift, for which one cannot be too thankful: a great European novel.’
 

Susan Sontag on The Day of Judgement

APOLLO - DW QUOTE

APOLLO - DW QUOTE

 

 

‘One of the most original, subtle and magical of American writers. Her prose is incandescent and her vision supremely humane.’

Joyce Carol Oates on Delta Wedding

APOLLO - MSMS QUOTE

APOLLO - MSMS QUOTE

 

 

‘A novel in the grand tradition... one scene succeeds another with compelling force. A book which is real, satisfying and fine.’

Evening Standard on My Son, My Son

APOLLO - BC QUOTE

APOLLO - BC QUOTE

 

 

'Exquisitely poetic...Yet despite the despair inherent in almost every page of this book, Andric's descriptive prowess made this one of the most elevating reading experiences I can recall.'

Misha Glenny on Bosnian Chronicle
