Revue de presse :

"[A] comic tour de force...Moody is at his most daring and arresting."? James Gibbons, BookForum

"Moody's powers of invention, his ease in his own prose, his ability to develop interesting characters--in short, his enormous gifts as a writer--are on full display here. And when he wants to write a gorgeous paragraph, he delivers as you know he can, even when he's still spoofing."? Clancy Martin, The New York Times Book Review

"A grab bag of sardonic fun."? The Dallas Morning News

"Moody's foremost accomplishment....Moves with unapologetic swagger, as it flaunts the extremes of storytelling."? John Domini, Bookslut

"As pulpy... as The Four Fingers of Death might sound, it's oddly something sweeter and more profound."? Associated Press

"Comic, grim, tender and masterful."? Bloomberg

"Sci-fi as only Moody could write it--in turns touching and outrageous."? "Very Short List," The Observer

"700-plus pages of wacky, wonderful imaginings."? More

"Entertaining and often poignant."? The New Yorker
