Reviews

"One word: bravo."--The New York Times Book Review

"Truly powerful . . . Beautiful Children dazzles its readers on almost every page. . . . [Charles Bock] knows how to tug at your heart, and he knows how to make you laugh out loud, often on the same page, sometimes in the same sentence."--Newsweek

"Exceptional . . . This novel deserves to be read more than once because of the extraordinary importance of its subject matter."--The Washington Post Book World

"Magnificent . . . a hugely ambitious novel that succeeds . . . Beautiful Children manages to feel completely of its moment while remaining unaffected by literary trends. . . . Charles Bock is the real thing."--The New Republic

"A wildly satisfying and disturbing literary journey, led by an author of blazing talent."--The Dallas Morning News

"Wholly original--dirty, fast, and hypnotic. The sentences flicker and skip and whirl."--Esquire

"An anxious, angry, honest first novel filled with compassion and clarity . . . The language has a rhythm wholly its own--at moments it is stunning, near genius."--A. M. Homes

"From start to finish, Bock never stops tantalizing the reader."--San Francisco Chronicle

"Rich and compelling . . . captures the hallucinogenic setting like a fever dream."--Los Angeles Times
