Reviews

`Reading Murnane, one cares less about what is happening in the story and more about what one is thinking about as one reads. The effect of his writing is to induce images in the reader's own mind, and to hold the reader inside a world in which the reader is at every turn encouraged to turn his or her attention to those fast flocking images.' * New York Times *
`Murnane, a genius, is a worthy heir to Beckett.' * Teju Cole *
`Murnane is quite simply one of the finest writers we have produced.' * Peter Craven *
`Murnane's early writing, as shown here, is accessible and often humorous in his own dry way...A Season on Earth could be recommended as an ideal jumping-off point for readers new to Murnane and his particular way of looking at the world.' * Books + Publishing *
