"The Red Arrow is bold and thrilling--a work of unbridled imagination. Unlike anything I've read in a long time."
--Charles Yu, author of Interior Chinatown

"The Red Arrow feels like a book that's gently tapping on your brain from a different dimension. It's an astonishing portrait of a distressed mind searching for peace and hope and harmony, and finding it in the most sublime of places. Deeply insightful and often hilarious, it's a dazzling head-trip of a novel, and a profound delight."
--Nathan Hill, author of The Nix

"Conceptually dazzling and darkly comic, The Red Arrow is a graceful, relentless exploration of a man on his way back from the edge. Brewer somehow manages to spin sentences that are at once meticulous and effortless, fractally complex and full of heart. This is an achingly beautiful, intensely brilliant debut from an outrageously talented writer--I can't stop thinking about this book."
--Kimberly King Parsons, author of Black Light

"The Red Arrow is hypnotic, heartbreaking, and shot through with a fierce, determined joy. William Brewer has a talent for dark comedy, and for the sort of defamiliarization that can make one feel somehow more attuned and alive. A beautiful trip through a world made new."
--Anna Wiener, author of Uncanny Valley
