“It's inevitable that Setz will be compared to Thomas Pynchon, for his narrative has a similar complexity, nuance and, yes, even paranoia.”
- Kirkus Reviews
“Alarming and surreally beautiful… Part postmodern thriller, part essay into the darker reaches of prejudice, Indigo offers a set of terrifying hypotheses, many of which remain hauntingly unrealized. Setz has conducted a masterly interrogation of the prurience, morbid curiosity and exploitation that informs contemporary society, introducing a cast of memorably repellent characters. At the same time, he creates a psychological atmosphere in which it is possible for us to feel compassion even for some of his more sinister creations.”
- John Burnside, Times Literary Supplement (UK)
“The questions [Indigo] raises regarding empathy and loneliness are explored in moving and idiosyncratic ways.”
- New Yorker
