Críticas: Praise for Thomas Mallon

Dewey Defeats Truman

"Like Shakespeare's summery comedies, this novel about love's madness [is] a lovely meditation on the interplay between past and present in the invention of the public and private selves."
-- Jay Parini, "New York Times Book Review"

"Charming. . . . What makes Mallon's novel especially appealing is its atmosphere and authenticity. [He] is a master of detail about a place and a time."
-- Herbert Mitgang, "Chicago Tribune"

"Dewey Defeats Truman is the kind of novel that restores meaning to the present by recovering the past."
-- Mary Ellen Hannibal, "San Francisco Chronicle "
Henry and Clara

"A pitch-perfect rendering. . . . Mesmerizing."
-- Chris Patsilelis, "Philadelphia Inquirer"

"A transporting, beautifully written novel."
-- "Entertainment Weekly"

"You can't ask for more from historical fiction."
-- George Garrett, "Washington Post Book World"

"Thomas Mallon [is] one of our finer novelists writing about politics (especially those of the 19th century). . . . The arena in which Mallon does his darkest, most gripping work is not that of the solar system but of Washington's spoils system . . . Mallon rewards the reader with wicked humor and deep insight. . . . This is a novel that abounds in rewards."
"The New York Times Book Review"
"Mallon has a fabulous eye for the people at the edge of the historical picture. In "Two Moons" he brings together a prodigious amount of well-researched period detail and an imaginative deployment of authentic characters. . . . The poisonous Washington atmosphere of hateful Reconstruction politics, tinged by the specter of malaria, practically seeps from the pages of the book. . . ." Two Moons" is a novel about a quaint kind of homegrown ambition and optimism that is uniquely American. You could call Thomas Mallon either a dreamy scholar or a scholarly dreamer. Either way, his fiction is as lucent as moonlight."
"The Washington Post"
"The book's blend of brainy repartee, soulful poignancy and literary game-playing calls to mind the work of Tom Stoppard. . . . Droll, probing and heartbreaking."
"Chicago Tribune"
"Thomas Mallon's writing sneaks up on you. No verbal pyrotechnics, a one-foot-after-the-other narrative approach but every so often, you pause and realize that he's been stringing together one perfectly balanced sentence after another, chapter after chapter. . . . Mallon is effective at evoking a time not so unlike ours when rationalism and mystical thought overlapped in unpredictable, personal ways."
"A wonderful piece of historical fiction. Mallon is a subtle, careful writer who packs his books with thought-provoking depth."
"The Denver Post"
"Mallon spreads, like a tapestry, a defining historical moment. He then illuminates it through the lives of its minor players, both real and imagined. . . . "Two Moons" is rich in texture and atmosphere."
"Star Tribune"
"Mallon reliably marshals the kind of period detail that makes him a formidable historical novelist."
"Publishers Weekly"
"American history, technological innovations, and romance excite Mallon's incisive intelligence and lithe imagination. . . . Readers witness all these goings-on through the sharp eyes of Mallon's irresistibly down-to-earth heroine, Cynthia May, a witty, freethinking, and mathematically gifted war widow. . . . Mallon refracts questions of war, woman's rights, and the ordering of the cosmos through the perfect prism of his heroine's mind, adeptly mixing keen social commentary with sheer entertainment."
"[A] breezy and entertaining historical caper. . . . Mallon recounts his characters respective machinations with good-humored energy in an essentially well-paced narrative. . . . He composes unfailingly graceful sentences, makes transitions expertly, and communicates nicely both his characters' and his own pure pleasure in the spectacle of a vigorous country newly at peace and pleased to kick up its political and sexual heels."
"Kirkus Reviews""
