Critic Reviews

"As a writer, Carrère is straight berserk; as a storyteller he is so freakishly talented, so unassuming in grace and power that you only realize the hold he's got on you when you attempt to pull away. You say: True crime and literature? I don't believe it. I say: Believe it." (Junot Díaz)
"Mesmerising." (Sunday Telegraph)
"Stunning." (Evening Standard)
