Reviews

"Erickson has established a reputation as a daring, lyrical writer with a strong following among other novelists and a distinctive brand of cultural taste: West Coast, genre-bending and earnestly experimental."---"LA Times" "It''s simply impossible to explain the intent and direction of this funny, disturbing, daring and demanding novel-Erickson''s best. The set pieces in "Zeroville" are particularly breathtaking."--"The New York Times" "Told in a series of short, punchy sections, Erickson expertly weaves together themes of music, politics, and idealism in a modern story where preconceptions are outdated."--"Publishers Weekly" "With this book, set against the backdrop of Obama's ascendancy to the presidency, Erickson weaves a complex and imaginative literary tapestry about family and identity."---"Kirkus" (starred review) "It's simply impossible to explain the intent and direction of this funny, disturbing, daring and demanding novel-Erickson's best. The set pieces in "Zeroville" are particularly breathtaking."--"The New York Times" Praise for These Dreams of You "I am astonished at the emotions this book let flood through my head and heart." --Susan Straight "As unique and vital and pure a voice as American fiction has produced." --Jonathan Lethem "One of the most important writers of his generation. Erickson's work feels like right here, right now. Against it, most new fiction read like it was written by stenographers." --Atlanta Journal-Constitution "Erickson is a gambler, one of the fabulous mythmakers who are needed in these times of deprivation of the imagination." --New York Times Book Review "Marked by familiar coordinates but always in fantastic light... Erickson's writing seems both heroic and necessary." --The San Francisco Chronicle "Steve Erickson has that rare and luminous gift for reporting back from the nocturnal side of reality." --Thomas Pynchon "There's no one in the world writing like Steve Erickson." --Los Angeles Times Book Review "Over his entire career Erickson has challenged readers with a fiercely intelligent and surprisingly sensual brand of American surrealism." --Washington Post "It's simply impossible to explain the intent and direction of this funny, disturbing, daring and demanding novel--Erickson's best.
