Critical Praise

"The depth and richness of Norman Rush's second novel, Mortals, give him his own shelf in the canon"

——New York Magazine

"Full of situations that range from subtly humorous to near slapstick that reveal an unusually keen human insight."

——The Denver Post

"An astonishing accomplishment . . . [A] detonation of talent that threatens to incinerate competitors for miles around."

——The Christian Science Monitor

"Rush has now produced three books so full of brainwork, contour, sinew and laser light that we don't want to leave home without him."

——The New York Times Book Review
