Praise for My Name Is Nathan Lucius
“Noir at its darkest, cunningly executed.”

“Without question one of the year’s most ambitious, suspenseful, tightly controlled and expertly executed novels . . . Lucius is a Cape Town Raskolnikov . . . In a dizzyingly dazzling complication of before and after, Winkler implicates the reader as judge, jury and executioner in a wider set of criminal entanglements, both forging intense sympathy for the troubled Lucius, and forcing the reader to consider whether this disaffected man is capable of much greater, more disturbing acts of violence . . . Winkler’s lean, lithe sentences ripple with allusive intensity and gritty detail.”
—LitNet, South Africa
“A meticulously crafted thriller-cum-trauma novel that explores broader themes of morality, responsibility, society and the human psyche . . . When the key revelations unfold, they are genuinely shocking . . . Winkler’s novel is satisfying clever, his character and plot pithy, elusive, sharp and captivating.”
—Aerodrome, South Africa

“It is with steady confidence that Winkler builds out his protagonist’s psyche in this exploration of memory, death, friendship, euthanasia, and psychological trauma.”
—Mystery Scene Magazine

“The twists and turns that Winkler provides make the novel addicting from its unusual beginning to its final sentence, which is a revelation all by itself. Be prepared.”
—The Book Reporter

“Winkler delivers a superb noir thriller. Readers of Chuck Palahniuk and Irvine Welsh will savor the psychological twists and turns, while aficionados of Dennis Lehane and Thomas Harris will enjoy Winkler’s exploration of the protagonist’s morality and responsibility.”
Library Journal, Starred Review

“Daring . . .  If you do pick it up, clear the schedule, because you’ll need to finish it before you’ll be able to do anything else.”
—Kingdom Books

My Name Is Nathan Lucius is bleak, ambitious, and thought provoking, and it will find fans among lovers of both darkest noir and transgressive literary fiction.”

“Those with a taste for the darkest of noir will be gratified.”
—Publishers Weekly
