Praise for All the Secrets of the World:

"With one unexpected twist after another, Steve Almond pulls you into this wild and engrossing novel about family, scorpions, and the rules of attraction. In All the Secrets of the World he shrewdly dissects the social and emotional landscape of 1980s California and creates a true page-turner." -Héctor Tobar, author of The Last Great Road Bum

Praise for Steve Almond:

"Almond's language is rendered in precise strokes, void of bland modernist generalities, with metaphors so original and spot-on that they read like epiphanies." San Francisco Chronicle "A gifted storyteller, Almond hooks you on the first page and keeps the thrills coming." People Magazine "Steve Almond is one of our finest literary provocateurs. His stories are without equal in their beautiful terrible honesty." Junot Diaz "[Almond's work] will make you grateful--for wit, for self-effacing humor, for joyful obsessiveness, for the precise and loving use of language to crack open and celebrate our oddness--in short, for a writer as funny and big-hearted as Steve Almond." George Saunders

"Mr. Almond ... is a shifty cornerback of a writer: rangy, sarcastic, offbeat. And every once in a while, he'll blindside you with a big hit." Dwight Garner, New York Times
