“The rancorous, interminable friendship between a Great Man and his envious, self-pitying biographer drives this cleverly coiled narrative....As deliciously intimate and clue-riddled as a Poe story.” ―Publishers Weekly
“Ticknor is one of this year's most enjoyable and formally impressive books.” ―The New York Sun
“Sheila Heti's touch is confident. She builds a memorable world inside the tiny space of Ticknor's anxious imagination, and we barely miss the air outside.” ―San Francisco Chronicle
“A pungent and hilarious study of bitterness and promise unfulfilled.” ―Boldtype
“Heti paints a full and rich character:curmudgeonly, downright pathetic, but surprisingly fascinating.” ―Bookforum
“A par-ticularly satisfying puzzle: Heti's prose is the journey, and the destination.” ―The Village Voice
“Heti packs more life and literary pleasure into Ticknor than most authors do in novels three or four times its length.” ―David Bezmozgis, author of Natasha
