"Petterson's spare and deliberate prose has astonishing force." --The New Yorker
"A gripping account of such originality as to expand the reader's own experience of life." --The New York Times Book Review
"Out Stealing Horses looks like a charming but modest chamber-piece. In retrospect--and this is a novel that strikes deep and lingers long--it feels more like some shattering literary symphony." --The Independent
"A . . . miracle of a book." --The Irish Times
