  • The best, most sincere writer I've ever read

    Kurt Vonnegut
  • Breece D’J Pancake left behind an astonishing achievement. He was a master of a distinctly American vernacular, which he used to remind us of all the ways that fiction could teach us about ourselves. These stories are absolutely essential reading

    Kevin Powers, author of The Yellow Birds
  • This is an exceptional voice; gritty, mordant, invested with the texture of stroked reality; urgent and haunting

    Margaret Atwood
  • Muscular, precise, lyric and unforgettable… Utterly singular

    Eileen Battersby, Irish Times
  • Simple, rich with dialogue and precious

    Anna Fielding, Stylist
  • [Pancake’s] words…combined with an unsparing vision of humanity create the spine-tingling sense that you’re reading an original

    Max Liu, Independent
  • Haunting brilliance

    John Dugdale, Literary Review
  • By any standards, [the story “Trilobites”] is a masterpiece; that it is an artistic debut is astonishing… To say that Breece D’J Pancake is not well enough known is a massive understatement… Quite simply, a literary genius

    John Burnside, Guardian
  • Impressive

    Philip Maughan, New Statesman
