Praise for The One-Eyed Man:

“Ron Currie has created a character for our times. . .In these latter days of ‘alternative facts,’ the idea of someone fearlessly dedicated to total, literal honesty sounds awfully appealing.” 
–Ron Charles, The Washington Post

“A comically verbose and culturally savvy narration tempered by a bass line of vulnerability. K. may not be the truth-telling hero America wants, but he’s unquestionably the one we deserve.”
 –The Wall Street Journal

“Entertaining . . . a witty, knotty novel of ‘truth’”
– The Los Angeles Times

“When George Saunders wrote ‘humor is what happens when we’re told the truth quicker and more directly than we’re used to,’ he was talking about the fiction of Kurt Vonnegut – but the line applies perfectly to Ron Currie’s new novel . . . The One Eyed-Man manages to offer readers humor, truth, and something else: the weird, uncomfortable way that life reveals its plans for us.”
 –Nick Ripatrazone, Google Play Books

“Currie navigates the funny-sad axis of human relations as well as anyone writing today. . . He’s a consummate performer – engaging and generous, filled with provocative ideas and gorgeous language to express them.”
 –Portland Press Herald

 “Currie is a talented storyteller . . . he explores the pain of loss and the possibility of redemption with aplomb, humor, and an empathetic hand in this heartbreaking tale.”
–Publishers Weekly

“Nobody writing today walks the knife edge of cynicism and sentiment more bravely, intelligently and confidently than Ron Currie. By turns hilarious and heartfelt, The One-Eyed Man is a revelation, a wonder.”
–Richard Russo, author of Everybody’s Fool

The One-Eyed Man delivers blistering, hilarious social satire and apocalyptic hijinks with the best of them, but what you have after the smoke clears is a deep, moving novel about love and grief. Ron Currie is a many-eyed and many-hearted wonder.”
– Sam Lipsyte, author of The Ask
“Dead-on timely satire. Currie is as readable as he is brilliant.”
 –Matthew Quick, author of The Silver Linings Playbook

“A Swift-ian morality tale about a land of ‘hysteria and half-truths’ . . . Currie’s caustic humor and deadly sarcastic bite win out.”
Kirkus Reviews
