Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This noir sendup turns out to be a real killer debut…The book is funny, with a satirical edge, and unlike some literary authors who play with genre, Gordon knows how to write a potboiler.” Los Angeles Times
“David Gordon has gathered up our cultural trash and made of it something magnificentThe Serialist makes high art out of serial murders, pornography, soup dumplings, and pulp fiction. I adore this book!” Rivka Galchen, author of Atmospheric Disturbances
“Winning…A darkly humorous thriller.” Publishers Weekly
“Pinchot’s storytelling ably transitions from the narrative voice of the self-deprecating Jewish author to that of the truly evil man in prison. Other characters [are also] well portrayed…Pinchot negotiates all these elements with alacrity and humor.” AudioFile
“A tour de force debut.”  Kirkus Reviews
