Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Nisbet captures the absurdities of present-day America with a rare pungency in this noir gem, which not only succinctly illuminates a complex process like a California pharmaceutical company’s rapid rise, growth, takeover, corporate squeeze, outsourcing, and inevitable decline but also puts a human face on it.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Nisbet’s novels always look like one thing but turn out to be something else entirely. It is a rare talent, not accessible to all, perhaps, but no less special.” Booklist
