Reviews

- "Illuminated by a clear and insightful knowledge of what it means to be human... Petterson is really a masterful depictor of contemporary life. His prose is precise, simple, and yet so magically different that it constantly offers a new insight... Lucky is the reader who has yet to read Petterson." --"Nordjyske, Denmark"

- "An extraordinarily humane work... "I Refuse" will lodge in the heart and remain there." --Eileen Battersby, "Irish Times"
- "A poignant, melancholic novel about the bonds forged and broken between friends and family members." --Lucy Scholes, "Independent "
- "Relentless, often shocking, but always satisfying... telling each man's story with brutal honesty and poignantly reinforcing a sense of existential malaise." --Matthew Bremner, "Financial Times "
- "Petterson's signature technique lies in drawing the most zigzag line imaginable through narrative chronology but the effect is not of confusion, rather of a dense, layered complexity: it is the realist novel form's mimetic faithfulness to lie itself." --Neel Mukherjee, "Guardian"
