«Tidhar truly is one of the key literary voices of the modern age... <i>A Man Lies Dreaming</i> is a masterpiece'»

The Fantasy Hive

«'Tidhar knows how to say a great deal in very little. There is eloquence and gravitas in the sparseness and brevity of noir fiction when it is good, and Tidhar's is quite incredible'»

«'Tidhar tightropes between fantasy, farce, and historical fiction, all while grounding things in brisk, gritty noir. Parallels to our current state of affairs abound, but if anything, they're simply symptoms of how the past can recycle itself in frightening new ways – a process that <i>Dreaming</i> compellingly picks apart and rewires. History isn't written by the winners or the losers, Tidhar illustrates, but by those who know how to shroud it and spin it the most entertainingly. Which only makes <i>Dreaming</i> all the more chilling'»
