Recensioner i media
"These nine stories are filled with longing, guilt and violence." * New York Times * "Jewelled and barbed with the beauty and brutality of real life, these are sentences of perfect weight and understanding. There are no fillers here, no stories that disappoint: the nine coalesce into something rare and understatedly breathtaking. Like the missing who haunt these stories, Thunderstruck is unforgettable." -- Stuart Evers * Observer * "Wonderful, moving tales." -- Erica Wagner * Financial Times * "An electric blend of hilarity and despair." -- Bonnie Jo Campbell * O, The Oprah Magazine * "[A] powerful collection." -- John Self * Independent on Sunday *
