Simply a very, very good debut novel. It discusses our human longing to function as smoothly as machines, our contempt for weakness, and the role of the weak in a world of achievement * Dagens Nyheter * This is an affectionate and incisive, compassionate and courageous book * Neue Zurcher Zeitung * Stridsberg's language is brilliant; feverish yet clear. The depiction of the milieus of American workers, academics and artists from the 1940s to the 1980s is superb, but at the centre is the tender yet razor-sharp insight into the mind of a limitlessly fascinating individual * Deutschland Radio Kultur * Urgent and poetic. ... fascinating literature * Bayerischer Rundfunk * At once a hagiography, an exercise in admiration and a portrait of a marginal America, this passionate novel reveals the fate of the woman who wanted to shoot Andy Warhol * Lire * Impressive and bewitching, The Faculty of Dreams is unquestionably one of the revelations of the publishing season * Le Magazine litte'raire * The thrilling spectacle, the muscles and bone, of a vibrant, living text ... This novel of rare strength unleashes an irresistible seduction * Le Monde * Stridsberg excels in mixing documented facts with a liberated fiction in a feverish, vibrant prose * Nordic Council Award * Stridsberg's evocation of Valerie Solanas conjures images that are poetic and enchanting * Dagens Nyheter * Brilliant, multi-layered, thrilling ... a burning love letter with icy observation at its core * Svenska Dagbladet * One of the most genuinely insubordinate books I have read, and one of the most beautiful . . . this book earns its laurels -- Katy Waldman * New Yorker *
