Mirror Thief

“Audaciously well written…the book I was raving about to my friends before I’d even finished it.”
The New York Times Book Review

“A wondrous debut, a deliciously intricate, centuries-spanning tripartite tale of money and mysticism…Mr. Seay has conjured his own kind of sorcery, a sophisticated thriller that keeps the pages turning even as it teases the mind.”—Sam SacksThe Wall Street Journal

Red or Dead

“I’d offer the British P.M. Red or Dead, David Peace’s demented novel about real-life soccer coach Bill Shankly… The novel is barking mad, but quite brilliant, and is a monument to a kind of magnificent decency once at the core of British life, but now rapidly fading.”
Kazuo Ishiguro, The New York Times Book Review

“Robert Coover, Don DeLillo and David Foster Wallace have shown that it is possible to write ultraliterary, even experimental novels about sports. What they did for baseball and tennis is matched, if not trounced, by what British writer David Peace has done for soccer, first with ’The Damned Utd’ (2006) and now with his massive, mesmerizing ’Red or Dead.’”
Washington Post

The Revisionaries

”A beautiful, harrowing, thrilling book. Saints and sinners roam its pages, trying to save the world or themselves, or just figure out what the hell went wrong. Wielding exuberant, intelligent prose, A. R. Moxon grapples with the modern world and its villians and inverts our expectations like hapless turtles. It’s a wild ride and a great read.” —Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler’s Wife

The Revisionaries has not only heart and brains but the lively pulse of a singular voice.” —Kelly Link, author of Get in Trouble
