Praise for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time:
"Mark Haddon's portrayal of an emotionally dissociated mind is a superb achievement. He is a wise and bleakly funny writer with rare gifts of empathy."
— Ian McEwan, author of Atonement
"This original and affecting novel is a triumph of empathy; whether describing Christopher's favorite dream (of a virus depopulating the planet), or his vision of the universe collapsing in a thunder of stars, the author makes his hero's severely limited world a thrilling place to be."
— The New YorkerFrom the Hardcover edition.
