Reviews

Praise for Mat Johnson

Loving Day

"Incisive . . . razor-sharp . . . cerebral comedy with pathos."--The New York Times Book Review

"Exceptional . . . To say that Loving Day is a book about race is like saying Moby-Dick is a book about whales."--Los Angeles Times

"Johnson is one of the funniest writers in America. . . . [He] gets at the heart of what it means to be a person--and he does so with more skill, generosity and, yes, love than just about anyone else writing fiction today."--NPR

"Giddy, biting . . . ferocious . . . a welcome effort from a major talent."--The Boston Globe

Pym

"Blisteringly funny."--Laura Miller, Salon

"Relentlessly entertaining."--The New York Times Book Review

"Imagine Kurt Vonnegut having a beer with Ralph Ellison and Jules Verne."--Vanity Fair
