Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A gripping thriller…Kunzru uses his extraordinary gifts as a storyteller—his brightly textured prose, his empathetic understanding of his characters, his narrative flair—to turn a tabloidy tale into a genuinely moving portrait of a marriage and the difficulties of parenthood.”  New York Times
“Kunzru is wise beyond his years, [a] novelist in superb command of his craft…In his dazzling new novel, a desert is the setting, hero, and villain…Here is where the walking wounded come to pray to Yahweh, Allah, Vishnu, Coyote, the Brothers of Light. Here are cynical veterans from WWII, hard-bitten GIs fresh from Iraq, randy communards, washed-up bankers, wasted groupies. Here is death, sex, and rock-and-roll.”  Washington Post
“Mind-bending…[A] thrill ride of a novel about searching for truth.”   O, The Oprah Magazine
“A stunning achievement…Gods Without Men will undoubtedly prove to be one of the most important works of fiction published this year.”  New York Journal of Books
