Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for The Infinite Blacktop

“There's a fascinating echo in these pages of classic LA noir detective fiction from the age of Hammett and Chandler...you'll be charmed by this eccentric, enticingly artful mystery.”  (Kirkus (starred review))

“Bold and stunning…mixing classic tropes of teen detective fiction with elements of eastern philosophy and a profound sense of the absurd, Gran takes readers on an unforgettable journey.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

"A singular mystery experience...Claire DeWitt is one part Auguste Dupin, one part Jack Kerouac-type "Dharma Bum" and allover nasty woman on a mission." (Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post)

“A marvel of a novel, one that combines the mysteries of seemingly unsolvable crimes and the deeper mysteries of the human heart. Written with both a vivid edge and heartfelt compassion, The Infinite Blacktop is one of the most exciting books of the year.” (Jeff Abbott, author of Blame and Adrenaline )

“Sara Gran’s Infinite Blacktop is a hard-boiled, existential masterpiece. There’s no detective as skilled or as strange as Claire Dewitt; mouse-whisperer, slumming angel, gnostic disciple. She always wins the day. Sara Gran is simply peerless.” 
  (Cara Hoffman, author of Running and So Much Pretty )

"Sara Gran’s latest is a total delight. Infinite Blacktop is  as captivating as it is unusual, an alchemical mixture of not one but three mysteries, scattered across time and America, all centered around the badass and deeply damaged Claire DeWitt, whose unconventional, unceasing, irrational mode of detection is like nothing else in crime fiction."   (Ben Winters, author of Underground Airlines )

“Metaphysical, gritty . . . .  Looks at the larger mysteries of life, love, and identity.”  (Library Journal)

"A thriller that is no ordinary, by-the-book crime procedural." (The Associated Press)

PRAISE FOR SARA GRAN’S CLAIRE DEWITT NOVELS

“The most interesting private eye I’ve encountered since Stieg Larsson’s Lisbeth Salander….Gran presents an unflinching, heartfelt portrait of the way many women of her generation have lived their lives:  speeding down the fast lane…  A fascinating read.”

  (The Washington Post)

“Delicious and addictive.” (Salon)

“Reads . . . as if David Lynch directed a Raymond Chandler novel.” (CNN)

“If Haruki Murakami wrote The Wire, it would come out something like Sara Gran; cryptic, dreamy, funny and gritty as hell. She's a phenomenal talent. Claire DeWitt is an unreliable detective unlike any other.”
  (Lauren Beukes, author of The Shining Girls )

“Terrific, I love this book! Absolutely love it.  This is the first fresh literary voice I’ve heard in years.  Sara Gran recombines all the elements of good, solid story-telling and lifts something original from a well-loved form." (Sue Grafton )

“Mesmeric. . . cerebral, weirdly fascinating, and unlike any other crime novel you’ll read." (The Guardian (UK))
