`Engaging, stirring and hard to put down ... a born storyteller ... a writer to savour.'
(The New York Times Book Review
`The most ferocious and astonishing scene of adolescent sexual first contact ever written: in English: in fiction.'
(The National Review
`At first Lunar Attractions looks like a very good first novel.... In fact, wow! It's terrific! And then, during one of the most surprising sex scenes you'll ever read in your life, it starts getting better.... Lunar Attractions has scenes like Emma being seduced by Rodolphe in Madame Bovary, or Julien stumbling across Europe battlefields in The Charterhouse of Parma, or Dean Moriary parking cars in On the Road.'
(The Los Angeles Times Book Review
`A spooky and wonderful book about growing up. I thought there were no new ways to write about adolescence, but Clark Blaise has proved me wrong.'
