"Marvelously written-the last thing you would expect in a story of blood and revenge. Beautiful."—Saul Bellow
"Rarely does a novel pull you in so quickly and so deeply. If there is such a thing as a literary thriller, this is it. Beautifully written, perfectly paced, impressively clever, and ultimately shocking in a way you never see coming. TONY AND SUSAN stays with you long after you've put it down."—
"My favorite novel of 2010 would have been my favorite novel of 1993- if only I had known about it . . . Wright died at the age of eighty; in 2010 TONY AND SUSAN returns to print as his stunning literary legacy."—Min Jin Lee in the Times (London), author of Free Food for Millionaires
"A masterpiece . . . A brilliant, brainy novel full of thrills...It would be easy to say that his critical intelligence dominates Tony and Susan, but Wright is a wonderful storyteller, a wonderful novelist . . . Tony and Susan makes one hunger to read more of Wright's work."—Chicago Sun-Times
"Absolutely terrifying, beautiful, and appalling. Parts of it shocked me, and I am not easily shocked."
"An elegant meditation on the process of reading, the relationship between reading and writing, the dance between writer and reader...beautifully wrought, troubling, and hard to forget."
