Review:

"STATUS QUO is a wry, funny book which manages to blend metaphor and message without being preachy or pretentious." - IndieReader

"Because success isn't always all it's cracked up to be and sometimes getting what you want really isn't what you want at all. Status Quo by Henry Mosquera will keep you guessing what is the perfect part of life." - Readers' Favorite

"Status Quo by Henry Mosquera is an introspective look at the dark side of the creative spark, as well as the consequence of getting what you wished for." - San Francisco Book Review

"Author and artist Mosquera (Sleeper's Run, 2011) offers a witty black comedy featuring a struggling writer who learns firsthand about life in the spotlight." - Kirkus Reviews

"I recommend Status Quo for a great weekend treat.  Curl up and get ready for the ride. This author knows how to set the stage for a great read." - Blogcritics

"The dialogue is superb, the narrative divine, and it just flows the way it's supposed to flow.  This is the way writers are supposed to write, dragging the reader in and keeping them in, whether by stranglehold or breathless wondering." - Jelly Bomb Review

"Henry Mosquera has set pen to paper and ignited a fire of fantastic reading in his latest
novel, Status Quo." - Feathered Quill Reviews

"
(Status Quo) never loses its sense of humor, and the commentary is incisive. Ultimately, it's an uplifting and hopeful novel, which solidifies Mosquera as a major writer to watch." - Self-Publishing Review
