Praise

Ironic, surreal, sometimes stunning and always chaotic . . . Gogolesque in its sardonic humor. (The New York Times)

The Dream Life of Sukhanov will tower over the majority of what publishers put out this year. (New York)

Steeped in the tradition of Gogol, Bulgakov, and Nabokov, Grushin is clearly a writer of large and original talent. (James Lasdun)

Grushin has imagined both Sukhanov’s carefully managed life and his richly troubling personal history with a detailed intensity that fruitfully echoes Solzhenitsyn’s best books, Tolstoy’s ‘The Death of Ivan Ilyich’ and John O’Hara’s Appointment in Samarra. (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

The next big thing in American literary fiction . . . so accomplished are her skills—so hauntingly assured—that more than one US critic has greeted her as the next great American novelist. (Financial Times)

Harks back to the great Russian masters [and] breathes new life into American literary fiction. (Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World)
