“McMahon is so much less well known than he deserves to be. His later novels, increasingly wry and exaggerated, bear a family resemblance to those of Kurt Vonnegut and to certain of Saul Bellow’s works. Yet there is an underlying sweetness to McMahon’s writing, a wholehearted engagement with those elements of scientific wonder that most resemble artistic creativity.”—Bookforum
“A slam-bang adventure tale.… As the novel delights in its own power to make the grim amusing and the dour delightful, it leaks its own positiveness onto the reader, lighting the air around him.”—Chicago Tribune
