Review

"An extraordinary writer. . . . Jonathan Carroll is a cult waiting to be born."
--Pat Conroy
"Jonathan Carroll is a changer. He's one of the special ones, one of the few . . . . He gives you his eyes to see with, and he gives you the world all fresh and honest and new."
--Neil Gaiman
"Jonathan Carroll is a master of sunlit surrealism--his beguiling, impossible novels are like Frank Capra films torn open to reveal the Philip K. Dick or Julio Cortazar mechanisms ticking away at their cores."
--Jonathan Lethem
"Jonathan Carroll is far superior to most writers working today, anywhere."
--"Spin Magazine on "Kissing the Beehive
"I envy anyone who has yet to enjoy the sexy, eerie and addictive novels of Jonathan Carroll. They are delicious treats--with devilish tricks inside them."
--The Washington Post on "Sleeping in Flame
"Carroll often startles with the deftness of his insights, both personal and metaphysical, and there are lines that, for their poetry, one wants to cut out and frame . . . beauty and wisdom reside here."
--Publishers Weekly on "The Marriage of Sticks
"Sensuous, sexy, and spiritual . . . Carroll's prose is enchanting, even spellbinding."
--"The San Diego Union-Tribune on "White Apples
"Imagine if David Lynch wrote in a good mood and came up with a punchy, smart-aleck version of "Lost Highway . . . but with a dizzying romance steeped in surreal circumstances at its center."
--"The "Boston" Globe on "White Apples

" I love Jonathan Carroll's books. They are as surprising and delightful as Rottweiler puppies-- and they bite, too."
--Audrey Niffenegger, author of "The Time Traveler' s Wife," on "Glass Soup"
"I always look forward to a new book by Jonathan Carroll--his work is consistently witty, compassionate and astounding, and "Glass Soup" is no exception. It is a tender, funny love story, both madcap and darkly metaphysical: a singular creation that further adds to the fabulous Carroll oeuvre."
--Dan Chaon, author of "You Remind Me of Me"
"An ambitious retelling of the cosmic struggle between good and evil... make Carrol's latest a delicious dish . . . . This is a marvelous comic feast."
--"Publishers Weekly," on "Glass Soup"
" The plausibly surreal "Glass Soup" provides more proof Carroll is as marvelous a writer as you'll find in this life or any other."
--"Cinefantastique"
" Welcome to another one of Carroll' s weird, wondrous worlds... "
"--Time Out ""New York"" "on "Glass Soup"
"" Glass Soup" is a wonder-story rich and complete in its own right, but fans will be interested to know that it also serves as a sequel to the tale of Vincent Ettrich and his beloved Isabelle Neukor, continuing the modern-day Orpheus tale begun in "White Apples," Carroll' s flights of imagination seem boundless, but, amazingly, his ambitious themes and hallucinatory landscape don' t get the better of this tightly plotted, beautifully written story. This may be his best work yet."
--"The Ruminator"
