About the book

Rich is a talent with a full head of steam, and he possesses that quality I admire most in any novelist—a mind for details that is equal parts percipient and original . . . His authorial vision is both a delight and a terror to behold.

Maxwell George, Oxford American

on King Zeno by Nathaniel Rich

A brilliant, unflinching account . . . Singular and powerfully strange . . . It is hard to imagine a more insightful account of mass grief and its terrible processes. This book is a future classic of disaster journalism, up there with John Hersey’s Hiroshima.

Rachel Cooke, The Guardian
on Ghosts of the Tsunami by Richard Lloyd Parry

An addictive dive into dangerous, extreme obsession. A must-read.

Julia Crouch, author of Her Husband's Lover about Our Kind of Cruelty

In the masterful and rueful Whiskey, the sentences and dialogue burn like 100 proof shots of the novel’s namesake: smoky, sharp, and chased with black humor.
