About the Author

Percival Everett is the author of more than thirty books, most recently The Trees and Telephone, which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.

Reviews

"Everett continues to be an endlessly inventive, genre-devouring creator of thoughtful, tender, provocative, and absolutely unpredictable literary wonders."--Booklist, starred review

"Everett brings his mordant wit, philosophic inclinations, and narrative mischief to the suspense genre. . . . [He] is adroit at ramping up the tension while sustaining his narrator's droll patter and injecting well-timed ontological discourses on...well...nothing. It may not sound like anything much, so to speak. But then, neither did all those episodes of Seinfeld that insisted they were about nothing. And this, too, is just as funny, if in a far different, more metaphysical manner. A good place to begin finding out why Everett has such a devoted cult."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"The preeminent satirist delivers a deadpan hilarious send up of poisonous contemporary racism and the international espionage genre. . . . It's absurd and utterly brilliant."--Oprah Daily, "Best Books of Fall"

"The phenomenally talented and prolific Percival Everett conducts a highwire act in Dr. No, balancing opaque mathematical theory with disarmingly deadpan humor over a daunting crevasse of nothing. . . . The result is an entertaining caper of philosophical proportions. It is an adventure that can be appreciated on any of the numerous levels that Everett is working on, from the unassuming bumbling of a humble mathematician to the provocative consequences of unmitigated power, nothing is quite as enjoyable as Dr. No."--Dave Wheeler, Shelf Awareness

"Percival Everett has always been a prolific writer, but the past few years have been an epic run even for him. . . . This caper novel will keep you laughing and pondering; nothing will get in the way of that."--Omari Weekes, Vulture's Most Anticipated Books of Fall 2022

"It's hard . . . to imagine a novelist today with fresher eyes than Percival Everett."--Christopher Borrelli, Chicago Tribune
