This week’s highlight reel:
- The Oregonian — “It’s bracing to read a novel that generates a fresh look at Our Troubled Times without the exhausted polemics and manipulative sentiments. In fact, The Mirage is a 9/11 novel we’ve been waiting for, audacious, funny and bold.”
- The Kitsap Sun — “The Mirage is a shimmering tour de force — an entertainment, a contemplation, and an indictment, all rolled into one.”
- BookPage — “It’s no easy task to recreate the universe in its own, if slightly distorted, image, yet Ruff has succeeded handily, dizzying and dazzling the reader with a fantastic—and fantastical—story.”
- The Brown Tweed Society — “Characters worth caring about, real tension and suspense, and a wildly unexpected resolution…”
- The Authors Speak — “Rarely do I call a book ‘transcendent’, but this one may be just that.”

Finished »The Mirage« yesterday.
What a courageous, wild, thoughtful and tender novel!
I am — like with all of your books so far — in awe.
