Product Details


“Truly spectacular. . . . While reading these terrific tales one wonders how a single mind can create such diverse fiction as Mark Haddon has done here.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

“[Haddon is] a virtuoso stylist. . . . One reads in a state of surrender.” —Chicago Tribune
“Gripping. . . . [Haddon is an] expert and innovative world-builder. . . . His voice can convey the authority of ancient fairy tales.” —The New York Times

“The nine stories in [The Pier Falls] are exuberant, lusty exercises in juxtaposition: intimacy and estrangement, exoticism and domesticity, innocuousness and malevolence, the cataloguing of minute detail and the expansiveness of the zoomed-out lens.” —The Guardian
“Haunting. . . . It is rare that an author can write with such depth and clarity.” —Austin American Statesman

The Pier Falls is pure genius and I’m jealous of every word.” —Douglas Coupland
