• "It is both timely and gratifying to see one of the country’s outstanding writers come to the attention of an English-language readership"

    Ángel Gurría-Quintana, Financial Times
  • "I read A Poison Apple in two impulsive, impatient sittings... Michel Laub is one of the most intelligent novelists at work south of the equator. If he were north of the equator, he’d be one of the most intelligent novelists there too. I love the minute intricacy of his compositions, and the way they stage such giant traumas."

    Adam Thirlwell
  • "In this sly and unexpected novel, Laub asks how some thrive in spite of trauma and others fall apart in the face of success."

    Financial Times
  • "DIARY OF THE FALL: Extraordinary... In my world, this novel is already a classic"

    Karl Ove Knausgaard
  • "DIARY OF THE FALL: A work of immense incantatory power"

    Neel Mukherjee, Literary Review
