Product description

Review

"Be warned: this book has the power to make even the most hard-hearted of readers shed a tear. Kimball has broken into new territory: [US] is one of the most graphic depictions of illness and loss I have ever read."

--The Glasgow Herald

"Michael Kimball never ceases to astonish. He is a hero of contemporary fiction."

--Sam Lipsyte

"There are two books I can remember that ever made me physically cry. There were the rape scenes in Saramago's Blindness, and there was nearly every chapter of Michael Kimball's [US]. While the first hurt because it was so brutal, Kimball's was a softer kind of invocation--as I read it in a bathtub, I could not shake the feeling of being held, as if somehow the words had interlaced my skin. This is the essence of the magic Michael Kimball holds--his sentences come on so taut, so right there, and yet somehow so calming, it's as if you are being visited by some lighted presence."

--Blake Butler
