Reviews

  • "The Readymade Thief is smart and strange, full of lovely Duchampian tricks and treats. Augustus Rose has infused his thriller with the true Dada spirit, nothing is quite what it seems. I loved it."

    Audrey Niffenegger
  • "In his highly addictive and multi-aceted first novel, Augustus Rose pits an irrepressible and gritty young heroine against a sinister group of fanatics. The Readymade Thief is a kickass debut from start to finish."

    Colson Whitehead, author of 'The Underground Railroad'
  • "The Readymade Thief is my favorite kind of book: an improbable one … A novel that's unexpected, uncategorizable, unputdownable."

    Robin Sloan, author of 'Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore'
  • "A rewarding novel full of pleasures and surprises. Every time I thought I knew where the story was going, it took me somewhere stranger and deeper than I could have imagined. A rich, heady mix of ideas and thrills."

    Charles Yu, author of 'How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe'
  • "Augustus Rose shows that he has one of the steadiest hands in fiction … Rose has crafted something memorable, crackling with energy, a truly wonderful tale."

    Kevin Wilson, author of 'The Family Fang'
