  • Beguiling, captivating, vital ... Informed by myth, this damning exploration of man's detachment from the animal world is ninth in a staggeringly learned series

    Stuart Jeffries, Guardian
  • The Celestial Hunter is an "initiation through the book", speculative but capable of changing how you see things

    Dominic Green, Spectator
  • A spellbinding modern magus . . . he writes like a poet, not a professor, in glinting, enigmatic nuggets of narrative. At a moment when atavistic kinds of peril, awe and terror seem close at hand, it feels no great stretch to share Calasso's core belief that "the gods always return"

    Boyd Tonkin, Financial Times
  • Calasso is especially good at describing the characters of myth and legend with a novelist's omniscient authority ... leaves you feeling not out of your depth, but smarter and better read

    A. E. Stallings, New York Times
