Reviews

Rock's prose calls to mind Kazuo Ishiguro, not just for its spareness but also for its mix of wonder and creepiness. --New York Times

Peter Rock (is) a master at making strange behavior and strange situations utterly believable and filling them with unbearable suspense. --Ursula K. Le Guin

A fascinating endeavor. --Kirkus Reviews
