Editorial Reviews


“William Jensen’s compelling debut novel touches a central mystery of contemporary American life: How can a boy manage to become a man when all the models he has are numb, angry, damaged―or absent altogether?” ―John Benditt, PEN-nominated and National Jewish Book Award-winning author of The Boatmaker

“. . . deeply moving and complex . . . has an ear to the ground for what makes us fully human: our yearning for more than the world will give. Cities of Men asks the big questions that all great novels do: Who are we? And how do we know? Jensen is a writer to watch.”―Scott Blackwood, PEN USA Award finalist and Whiting Writers’ Award-winning author
