Editorial Reviews


“You find yourself wanting to believe in Powell's characters because he turns them into townspeople of your unconscious by the power of his art.”

  (—Pat Conroy )

"An excellent, suspenseful ride... Powell digs deeply into some heavy themes, exploring pervasive violence and the startling path to radicalization that disaffected teens can find themselves on. In this well-constructed and believable story, there’s no easy way out for any of the characters. Readers will be eager to find out how these lyrical and tense stories entwine, and they eventually do, with surprising but inevitable results." (Publishers Weekly on Small Treasons)

“A beautifully written, disturbing portrait of Americans searching for meaning in a violent, fragmented world. What a marvelous novel.”

  (—Ron Rash, New York Times bestselling author of Above the Waterfall and Serena )

“Impossible to put down, Echolocation is the best work of Mark Powell’s young career, and brings all of his prodigious talents to bear on his most compelling story yet. An up-to-the-minute exploration of our political climate and the violence, both physical and emotional, that results from it.” (James Scott, author of The Kept )

“A brilliant novelist at the top of his game. Echolocation achieves that rare balance between complexity and pacing, a story rich and intricate, propulsive and satisfying. Mark Powell has been the South’s best-kept secret for far too long.” (David Joy, author of Where All Light Tends To Go )

“This terrifying novel is a work of genius. I couldn’t stop reading it, but I had to adjust to the world inside the book, which unnerved me much more than my actual trips to Syria did. Be careful as you read it, but for God’s sake, read it. Powell is something else. Whew.” (Dennis Covington, author of Salvation on Sand Mountain )

"Both richly regional and ambitiously international in scope, Echolocation probes the murky depths of a troubled marriage, moving between the personal and political with lyrical ease. Powell’s characters—flawed, contemplative, and viscerally alive—pine for meaningful communication as they struggle to ground their identities in a complex world. As intimate perspectives converge into a masterful plot, Echolocation delivers brutal truths about contemporary global politics—but not without a note of cautious hope.” (Julia Elliott, author of The Wilds )

“There is no doubt about it, Powell has established himself as a voice not only of Appalachia, but of all contemporary American literature." (—Southern Literary Review)
