Reviews

A single moment in modernity, deconstructed by the savagely entertaining, Acker-inspired voice of Laing.
A narrative written with immense vitality and, miraculously, the lightest of touches.--Deborah Levy
Written with bristling intelligence, this debut novel... pays homage to the iconoclastic author Kathy Acker, creating a pastiche of voices and identities.--Notable Book of 2018
Crudo could turn out to be a novel that we pick up years from now to remind ourselves how these times felt.--Alexandra Schwartz
Crudo seduces from the very first sentence. Laing as Acker is not a literary device--it is literary detonation.... Crudo is a hot, hot book.
A pretzel twist of form and meaning.... Laing strikes some terrific chords in this novel.--Dwight Garner
