PRAISE FOR THE LOSSES

“Cully Perlman’s “The Losses” is the rare kind of novel by a young American writer that will continue to work on you long after you’ve turned the last of its pages. Raw in its sheer narrative power, The Losses packs an uncommonly potent psychological punch, unfolding with the quiet inevitability of a Greek tragedy burnished by the slow glow of Cormac McCarthyesque embers.”

Mikhail Iossel,
Author of Every Hunter Wants to Know: A Leningrad Life

“Rich in character and plot, The Losses is a hard-boiled literary romp sure to send you scurrying for anything that Cully Perlman writes next.”

Jeff Parker,
Author of Where Bears Roam The Streets and Ovenman

“I’ve just read Cully Perlman’s hefty, ambitious, and radiant debut novel, The Losses, and I was flat knocked out. This is much more than a promising first novel by an inordinately gifted writer; it is a dazzling literary achievement. Perlman is an enchanter, casting his spell with lyrical prose, evocative details, and spellbinding characters. He explores familial chaos, reckless behavior, and tragic love with poise, savvy, and tenderness. What talent, what nerve, what a wondrous and spellbinding novel.”

John Dufresne / I Don’t Like Where This Is Going

"Cully Perlman’s debut novel, The Losses, examines the ways that intricate fissures can erode relationships. The more we learn about the characters, the tauter the truth is stretched. Before all hope is snapped Perlman stitches the sorrows back together with nimble fingers and a surgeon’s care. He makes the binding stronger. The culminating result is an unforgettable portrait of a complex family. With The Losses we gain an elastic new voice which will surely help us weave through these strange new days."
