Everyone who cares about literature should buy it * The Age * Remarkable -- Jonathan Derbyshire * New Statesman * The Pale King gave me a pleasure and excitement that I can describe only as biological. That is to say, the book produced in me that very rare, warm, head-to-toe tingling that comes with admission to a paradise of language and intelligence -- Joseph O' Neill * The Times * Sometimes as a critic the most important part of your job is to say: here, this is it, we've found it, someone's doing it. That someone was Wallace. He was the real thing * Evening Standard * The Pale King contains what's sure to be some of the finest fiction of the year . . . he was the closest thing we had to a recording angel * GQ * A transfixing and hyper-literate descent into relentless, inescapable despair . . . achingly funny, nothing short of sublime * Publishers Weekly * Rich and substantial and alive . . . Wallace's finest work as a novelist * Time * In a different dimension to the tepid vapidities that pass as novels these days. Sentence for sentence, almost word for word, Wallace could out-write any of his peers * Scotland on Sunday * Innovative, penetrating, forcefully intelligent fiction like Wallace's arrives once in a generation, if that * Daily Telegraph * Breathtakingly brilliant, funny, maddening and elegiac * The New York Times * One of the strangest, saddest, most haunting things I've ever read * Guardian *
