Product description

Review

Lethem fills his canvas with tinder-dry tension. The subtext is the division in American society, but the personal nature of Phoebe's tectonic shift in the desert is palpable, made flesh by Lethem's linguistic alchemy...A haunting tour of the gulf between the privileged and the dispossessed.

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

Both Phoebe and Charles are compelling, as are the desert setting and the vividly realized descriptions of its dwellers...Politics aside, it's an unrelentingly paced tale where the protagonists' developing relationship is just as interesting as the puzzle they're trying to solve. Utterly unique and absolutely worthwhile.

-- "Booklist (starred review)"

Hilarious and terrifying and wrenching...Unbearably resonant. Phoebe is one of the grandest, funniest heroes I've come upon in a long time.

-- "Megan Abbott, author of You Will Know Me"

Lethem [is] a master of the genre-bending detective novel and eccentric characters.

-- "Huffington Post"

Being a Jonathan Lethem novel, natural, The Feral Detective has plenty to say about American society along the way.

-- "Newsday"
