Rezensionen
Engrossing, poetically surreal. . . . Woundingly funny.
The New York Times Book Review

Exceptional. . . . Each story is quietly eerie with electric characters.
The Paris Review

His best work. . . . Readers will find some of the most thrilling and disturbing literary fiction of the year in this collection.
Financial Times

Marcus s writing is by turns extremely funny, affecting, and then disquieting, and as he moves seamlessly between these tones.
Los Angeles Review of Books

Spectacular. . . . Exhilarating.
The Guardian

One of Marcus s strengths [is] imagining a future which is similar enough to our world to seem plausible, but different enough for the reader to grasp the ramifications of certain fates with which our current world is flirting.
Vanity Fair

Ruthless and hilarious.
O, The Oprah Magazine

The wilder and more Swiftian the plots get, the more intimately the stories seem to evokea lived reality.
Harper s Magazine

Notes from the Fog is an intense, vividly written book, filled with nightmarish scenarios and leavened by wit. Few writers possess Marcus s agility with language or his controlled flights of imagination.
Portland Press Herald

Each story features moments of considered, lacerating prose threaded together by sentences that, like a marionette s strings, bring the world to full, expansive life. This is a bracing, forceful collection.
