Anmeldelser

«A transfixing and hyper-literate descent into relentless, inescapable despair . . . achingly funny, nothing short of sublime»

Publishers Weekly

«One of the strangest, saddest, most haunting things I've ever read»

Guardian

«Breathtakingly brilliant, funny, maddening and elegiac»

The New York Times

«Innovative, penetrating, forcefully intelligent fiction like Wallace's arrives once in a generation, if that»

Daily Telegraph

«In a different dimension to the tepid vapidities that pass as novels these days. Sentence for sentence, almost word for word, Wallace could out-write any of his peers»

Scotland on Sunday

«Rich and substantial and alive . . . Wallace's finest work as a novelist»

Time

«The Pale King contains what's sure to be some of the finest fiction of the year . . . he was the closest thing we had to a recording angel»

GQ

«Sometimes as a critic the most important part of your job is to say: here, this is it, we've found it, someone's doing it. That someone was Wallace. He was the real thing»

Evening Standard

«The Pale King gave me a pleasure and excitement that I can describe only as biological. That is to say, the book produced in me that very rare, warm, head-to-toe tingling that comes with admission to a paradise of language and intelligence»

Joseph O' Neill, The Times

«Remarkable»

Jonathan Derbyshire, New Statesman

«Everyone who cares about literature should buy it»

The Age
