"His best book...the most sustained...and the most resonant...This dark dream of a novel, both seductive and cautionary, reverberates as something both archetypal and up-to-the-minute. It's the news that exists between the lines, the story behind the story, a siren song, and a lighthouse's warning beacon."--"Newsday"An entrancing novel of fate and coincidence...a Chinese box of a book, in which the whole can be appreciated only as the sum of its eventually interlocking parts...It's no stretch to place Erickson alongside other such literary prestidigitators as Thomas Pynchon and Don DeLillo."--"San Francisco Chronicle"One of the most important writers of his generation...Erickson has sought to both eulogize and judge the century, laying bare its crimes, its possibilities, and its betrayals...Reading "The Sea Came in at Midnight, you might feel your entire history speeding by as an amorphous blur. Erickson's work feels like right here, right now. Against it, most new fiction reads like it was written by stenographers."--"Atlanta Journal-Constitution"Ingenious."--"The New Yorker"Exhilarating."--"Atlanta Journal-Constitution"The Literary Equivalnt of a Tsunami."--"Toronto Globe and Mail
