Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this lyrical but meandering novel, Jones (After the People Lights Have Gone Off) delicately portrays the coming of age of a young boy growing up in a family of werewolves. Throughout the novel, the unnamed narrator and his aunt, Libby, and uncle, Darren, both werewolves, wander the present-day American South working low-wage jobs while always wary of the dangers of staying in one place for too long and being recognized for what they really are. The narrator's voice is heartfelt and absorbing as he learns the rules of being a werewolf while always wondering whether he will become one himself, a question that drives the story to its moving conclusion. There are jailbreaks and various battles, including one with a bear, alongside several encounters with other werewolves. While the episodic structure sometimes causes the novel to feel as aimless as its characters, it's still an often moving portrait of a family struggling to survive in a world that "wants us to be monsters." (May)

Review

Mongrels isn’t just a coming-of-age story or a horror story. It looks at the world through a disturbing, uncomfortable lens, and offers up a brutal mythology of werewolves. I’ve never seen anything quite like it and I won’t forget it anytime soon.” (Carrie Vaughn, New York Times bestselling author of the Kitty Norville series)

“With lupine tongue tucked well into cheek, Mongrels is at once an adolescent romp through the tangled woods of family history and a rich compendium of werewolf lore old and new.” (Christopher Buehlman, author of Those Across the River and The Lesser Dead)

“Lyrical...The narrator’s voice is heartfelt and absorbing...an often moving portrait of a family struggling to survive.” (Publishers Weekly)

“A love letter to the American South...Jones’ portrayals of rural American ring true in many ways. Horror enthusiasts will also dig the graphic mythology...A Holden Caulfield analogue dropped into an old horror movie with a soundtrack by Warren Zevon.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Mongrels exists somewhere in the borderlands of literary and genre fiction, full of horror and humor and heart, at once a nightmarish road trip and a moving story about a broken family leashed together by their fierce love and loyalty. A bloody great read.” (Benjamin Percy, author of The Dead Lands, Red Moon, and The Wilding)

“Stephen Graham Jones is as powerful as the monsters herein.” (Josh Malerman, author of Bird Box)

Mongrels left me speechless. Or breathless. Certainly without my dew claw. I mean, it’s so smart, original, thrilling, horrifying, and human.” (Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and Disappearance at Devil's Rock)

“A gory monster coming-of-age tale that makes love triangles with sparkling vampires seem like trivial concerns...A thoughtful, entertaining novel with rich details, well-drawn characters, and, if you’ll forgive the phrase, plenty of bite.” (Los Angeles Times)

Mongrels makes a meal fit for any werewolf: meaty, surprisingly sweet of heart, and immensely satisfying...As real as anything you’d find in S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders. Only wiht more teeth.” (Tor.com)

“You ever read a book and know from the first page that it’s going to be something special?...SGJ’s words are reasonable enough to convert the biggest skeptic into a believer. He’ll have you howling at the moon and digging through the trash in no time.” (LitReactor)
