"Any sentence from Rich is worth reading, any thought worth pondering in this ambitious novel of ideas." --The New York Times Book Review (Editors' Choice)

"An irresistible literary thriller...Rich mines the terror of our times." --Rolling Stone

"The opposite of disaster, a knockout of a book by a young writer to keep your eye on from now on...As terrifically described as any of the best science fiction we have." --Alan Cheuse, NPR's All Things Considered

"Scarily prescient and wholly original." --Elissa Schappell, Vanity Fair

"Rich's descriptions of the vagaries of both nature and human nature are stark, fresh, and convincing, full of surprise and recognition as both good comedy and good terror must be." --Cathleen Schine, The New York Review of Books

"Nathaniel Rich has turned disaster porn into high art." --Annalee Newitz, Slate

"A brilliantly told novel, by turns terrifying, touching, and wildly funny." --Stephen King on The Mayor's Tongue

"An author who could well become one of the defining writers of his generation." --The Sunday Telegraph on The Mayor's Tongue

"A spare masterpiece." --The Boston Globe on The Mayor's Tongue
