Praise for Silence Once Begun

“Beguiling. . . . Ball enjoys borrowing some of the conventions of crime writing but in order to use them rather than to be used by them. . . . Appealingly funny.” –James Wood, The New Yorker

“Rashomon-like. . . . A graceful and multifaceted fable on the nature of truth and identity.” –Sam Sacks, The Wall Street Journal 

“Absorbing, finely wrought. . . . Causes a reader to go carefully, not wanting to miss a word.” –Helen Oyeyemi, The New York Times Book Review

“As in Kafka’s The Trial, the justice of Silence Once Begun is both tragic and absurd. . . . Genuinely surprising. . . . An accomplishment.” —Los Angeles Times
