“The only disappointment to be found in a novella by acclaimed author Mosley . . . is that it ends too soon. [Jack Strong is] a lively and deep foray into sf in a compact package that fans of Mosley’s speculative fiction will enjoy.” —Library Journal, starred review
“[Mosley] peoples his stories with working stiffs and scrappy fighters. Against a bleak landscape, their resilient spirits feel like rays of hope.” —The New York Times Book Review
“[Mosley is] a writer whose work transcends category and qualifies as serious literature.” —Time
“More evidence that Mosley is the Gogol of the African-American working class—the chronicler par excellence of the tragic and the absurd.” —Vibe
