PRAISE FOR SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN
"Torday's clear talent is in striking such a variety of notes, from soulful to satirical, and making them work as one bracing, bittersweet whole."--Michael Upchurch, Seattle Times
Sophomore novelist Torday (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) meditates on the question of what money can and cannot buy in this subtle, sorrowful tale...Torday is a talented writer and manages this sad story deftly, mixing in redeeming doses of humor and empathy.-- (11/10/2008)
