WRITING TESTIMONIALS

“The [Ugly] is a pleasure to read, not so much for style, which is superior, but for the high intelligence.  Very seldom, if ever, have I been asked to provide input on fiction so intelligent.  It’s mildly scary.”

………………..—Evelyn Rogers, fiction editor of The Missouri Review

“Congratulations! I’m delighted to let you know that “Pulling Shadows” has won first place in the PEN/Nob Hill novel excerpt contest. The piece is beautifully written and the subject matter is fascinating. We had a large number of entries, many of them excellent, but your piece was like Seabiscuit in his prime — way out there ahead.”

………………..— Joanna Catherine Scott, PEN/Nob Hill contest judge

“Alexander Boldizar comes up as the best ‘intellectual surprise’ I have found in years as an editor and art writer. Which does not prevent him from being simple, friendly and efficient.”

………………..—Jean Couteau, senior editor, 911 Media Arts Center

“It’s seldom that I have such a rich, powerful and timely piece to work with. A talented writer, reminiscent of Theroux (esp his Consul’s File). In turn, it reminds me of Somerset Maugham.”

………………..—Patrick Martin, features editor of The Globe and Mail

“Seldom does one encounter a book that balances so much intelligence with so much heart. Muzduk the Ugli belongs among the great heroes of fiction, alongside Bellow’s Augie March and Dostoevsky’s Aloysha. The Ugli is like a great professor entertaining with larger than life stories. It’s only after you stop laughing that you realize how much you’ve learned.”

………………..—Mark Powell, author of Blood Kin and Prodigals
