Praise for To Name Those Lost

“A fast-paced, hard-nosed fable about revenge, pursuit, and the search for a moral compass in a place where chaos and rage and injustice set every dial wildly aquiver.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“This is a satisfying, grimy adventure about a reciprocal violence that pollutes.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Readers who admired the propulsive plotting, atmospheric sense of place, and fierce family loyalty in Patrick DeWitt’s The Sisters Brothers and Cormac McCarthy’s The Road should be equally taken with Wilson’s (The Roving Party) superb novel. Highly recommended.”
Library Journal (Starred)

“Fierce, brutal, brilliant, beautiful—it’s hard to find enough superlatives to describe this hard gem of a novel by young Australian novelist Roahn Wilson. With a piercing literary prowess that brings to mind the prose of Cormac McCarthy, Joseph Conrad and William Faulkner, but ultimately becomes his exceptional own, he catapults us into the vicious, impoverished world of a colonial town in Tasmania of the 1870.”
—Minneapolis Star Tribune

“The jarring effect of Wilson’s tale is that nothing is as it appears. […] Making heroes of killers and saviors of thieves, Wilson manages to confuse morality while avoiding amorality. This isn’t a Robin Hood story, status quo turned on its head. It is a new system all together.”
Mari Carlson, Fiction Writers Review

“Wilson’s beautiful writing stands out in harsh contrast to the world of violence, heartache, and human suffering he depicts.  […] I loved this book, and I’m so glad to discover Rohan Wilson.”
Historical Novels Review

“Riveting . . . a tale that readers will not be able to wrench their eyes away from.”
—Geordie Williamson, The Australian

 “Wilson’s ambition may be no less than to recast the way in which historical fiction is written.”
The Sydney Morning Herald

“A heartbreaking and violent tale I can’t wait to share with everyone.”
—Keaton Patterson, Brazos Bookstore

“Ferocious and brilliant . . . there is no denying the raw power and purity of intent of Wilson’s To Name Those Lost.”
The Australian Book Review

“Wilson’s superbly taut novel keeps up its pace with spare punctuation and brutal dialogue in a vigorously drawn landscape feverish with the heat of a bushfire summer.”
The Saturday Paper

Praise for Wilson’s The Roving Party 

“One of the best first novels I’ve read all year…The urgency of the chase, carefully chiseled language, exotic characters and dangerous conflict with each other–it’s all here.”
Alan Cheuse, NPR’s All Things Considered

“[An] exceedingly powerful debut.”
Chicago Tribune
