Praise

Praise for James Sallis

“Then there’s James Sallis – he’s right up there, one of the best. It is quite possible that speaking of Jim Sallis in the same tone as Poe and Dostoevski is not overblowing on my part.”
—Harlan Ellison

“James Sallis is one of our greatest living crime writers . . . Try to get his words, his stories, his people out of your head. Just try.”
—Laura Lippman

“One of the most enjoyable and most important writers working today, James Sallis has quietly revolutionized an entire genre of literature. If you don’t ordinarily read crime fiction, you will love these books. if you do read crime fiction, you will never look at it the same after meeting Lew Griffith.”
—Sara Gran

“In addition to his masterly novels, Sallis is known for his work as a poet, and the lyrical beauty of his words shines through his pages. The story unfolds with the cadence of the down-home music that plays such an important part in the characters’ lives, weaving stories from the past through the narrative of the present to create a harmonious melody. It’s a crime that a writer this good isn’t better known.”
Chicago Sun-Times

“Sallis’s treatment is minimalist, stylish, and all the more evocative for it. Essential noir existentialism.”
The Guardian 

“The power of simplicity and the musical ring of truth as only Sallis can deliver it–as he has done bravely, consistently, for the last few decades.”
—The Los Angeles Times
