Praise

Praise for All the Rage

“Moran’s personal history is beautifully intertwined with his work as an interpreter for Siba, an African refugee seeking asylum in America after being imprisoned and tortured…A courageous release from the pain, guilt, and fury of sexual abuse.”
Kirkus Reviews

“What Martin Moran does so well, as well as any artist I’m aware of, is to exist in real time. I imagine it comes from his years on stage, but this talent (considerable) is difficult to transfer to the page. Yet with a few words, Moran captures, for one bright moment, what it is to be alive. Reading All the Rage is an experience like breathing—it builds and builds until by the end it completely surrounds you. Moran asks at one point if he, dear God, is not finished with this fucking story—yet as readers we stand in awe of his courage to push ever deeper into it, into rage and forgiveness, knowing that nothing is ever done. All the Rage is a small jewel of a book, a jeweled box made of nothing but air, really, which is all we have, in the end.”
—Nick Flynn

“Martin Moran is a graceful stylist with a rich, redemptive imagination. His sense of drama is unfailing, as is his sense of humor. Among the best writers, these aren’t uncommon gifts. But his courage is. It’s the kind required to hunt down one’s true self, with curiosity, and determination, and—here’s the hard part—love. Most of us look for the selves we want to see. Moran wants to see the self he is.”
—Kathryn Harrison

Praise for the work of Martin Moran

“[Moran] leads you into thought- and emotion-stirring territory that you don’t often visit…Because he has a novelist’s command of the evocative detail, there are times when a precisely rendered moment seems to open a window onto a hauntingly expansive view.”
—Ben Brantley, New York Times

“Brilliant, funny, and touching.”
The New Yorker
