‘A thrillingly smart and juicy writer.’
- New York Times
"The prose of Captivity Captive, in its singing, somehow makes an ugly incident strangely beautiful, and leaves me feeling I may have read a work of art which deserves to sit beside Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying and Ford Madox Ford’s The Good Soldier and Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s The Autumn of the Patriarch."
- Jack Hodgins
Everything about Rodney Hall’s work is major: the beauty of the writing, the dark and vibrant imagination, and the enormous pleasure it gives the reader.
from the reviews
Just Relations is magnificent ... so good that you wish you had written it yourself.
The characteristic tone of Kisses of the Enemy is one of black glee. But, although it is very funny, it is not primarily a comic novel. It is, finally, heroic. Rodney Hall displays the English language as if he had freshly washed it.
It looks new.
