Reviews

An intelligence and unsparing lucidity reminiscent of Joan Didion's work circa Slouching Towards Bethlehem. --New York Observer

He's a savant when it comes to scene reporting and has a nearly autistic command of minor details and facts. Armed with minutiae, he achieves the glorious breadth and details of a mural painter. --Village Voice

The protraits that emerge are exhaustive and often severe, but there is something delicate in Samuel's method. In his stories the random flow of events takes on real meaning, allowing us to see what's hidden in plain view and to hear what's being said. --The New York Times Book Review

Samuels is heir to an American tradition, and writing this terrific needs a place to go. --Los Angeles Times
