“Michael Tolkin is an L.A. Antonioni with a sense of humor.” —New Yorker

“One of the most wounding and satirical of all Hollywood exposés: dark and mordant . . . A nightmare rendered with icy precision.” —Los Angeles Times, on The Player

“A pungently witty and entertaining read . . . A perceptive denunciation of contemporary life . . . Tolkin proves himself a master of black comedy.” —Washington Post, on Among the Dead

“Startling . . . There is a fearlessness to Mr. Tolkin’s book that remains forceful.” —New York Times, on Under Radar

“Stunning . . . Provocative . . . A terrifyingly beautiful book.” —Newsday, on Among the Dead

“So unexpected, so full of startling insights, that it seems to be blazing a fresh trail. At the same time, it reveals a character who is bound inevitably to a disastrous past.” —Oregonian, on Under Radar

“Tolkin is the only American director working near the level of Paolo Pasolini and of Krzysztof Kieslowski’s Decalogue.” —Gary Indiana

“Flawless in form . . . one cannot reimagine any of [Tolkin’s novels] beginning, reversing course, or ending other than they do . . . relentless in their refusal of false notes as every sentence feels triple-tested against cliché, against any kind of fuzzy imagining . . . each book still further engages the world we share, on the world’s terms. Tolkin’s personal voice, political sense, and moral insight fuse with thrilling energy.” —F.X. Feeney, Writers Guild of America’s Written By Magazine
