Reviews

"Sharp, clear, and mercilessly lean. Not only did that style fit Cass, it fit Hand: The author, roughly the same age as her character, was also a part of the punk scene in her youth. Generation Loss rasps with gritty authenticity, from the copious references to artists like Iggy Pop and the Ramones to the way Cass' hardcore attraction to damage and destruction propels her deep into the book's maze of murder and secrets." -- Jason Heller, NPR "Although it moves like a thriller, it detonates with greater resound. A dark and beautiful novel." --Washington Post Book World "Cass is a marvel, someone with whom we take the difficult journey toward delayed adulthood, wishing her encouragement despite grave odds." -- Los Angeles Times "Like William Burroughs and Mary Gaitskill, Hand stuns her readers into finding enjoyment in her gravel pit." -- Cleveland Plain Dealer "Hand's terse but transporting prose keeps the reader turning pages until Neary's gritty charm does, finally, shine through." -- Entertainment Weekly "Intense and atmospheric, Generation Loss is an inventive brew of postpunk attitude and dark mystery. Elizabeth Hand writes with craftsmanship and passion." George Pelecanos "Hand (Mortal Love) explores the narrow boundary between artistic genius and madness in this gritty, profoundly unsettling literary thriller." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "A riveting page-turner." -- Valley Advocate "The novel crackles with energy: it is alive." -- Nicholas Rombes (The Ramones and New Punk Cinema) "Intense and atmospheric, Generation Loss is an inventive brew of postpunk attitude and dark mystery. Elizabeth Hand writes with craftsmanship and passion." -- George Pelecanos "Lucid and beautifully rendered. Great, unforgiving wilderness, a vanished teenager, an excellent villain, and an obsession with art that shades into death: what else do you need? An excellent book." -- Brian Evenson, The Open Curtain
