Praise for Walter Tevis’s The King is Dead

“A glorious book. . . . As a plotter, Tevis was an efficient storyteller: he didn’t usually go in for wild twists and big shocks. As a stylist, he was remarkably subtle; his prose was lean and unadorned, his characters sketched in a few well-chosen words. But there is a dramatic weight to his stories that makes them deeply satisfying—small moments that make us take a second look at a character, or a slight shift in tone that changes the direction of a story. A fine introduction to Tevis’ masterful writing.” Booklist [starred review]
