Reviews

"[A] dark, antic satire. . . . Szalay is a barbed observer of office life, and his study is most scathing when inspecting the perils of extracting self-worth from work."--The New Yorker

"London and the South-East is a stunningly accomplished debut novel. Szalay's moods, tones and range of situations manage to be scabrously funny or desperately grim. . . . It is here, in this brilliant bittersweet tragicomedy, Szalay first showcased his prodigious capabilities."--Star Tribune (Minneapolis)

"Watch for many twists and turns in this fiendishly plotted page-turner."--Library Journal, starred review

"[A] devastatingly observant novel. . . . Written with intense psychological acuity and inventive detail."--Publishers Weekly

"[A] nuanced portrait of desire and its discontents. . . . Szalay writes with real heart about his protagonist--a man lost in the middle of his own existence."--Kirkus Reviews
