Reviews

A remarkable accomplishment... [Cherry] will shake your soul. -- Atticus Lish * Harper's Magazine *
[An] unforgettable mix of doomed and dazzling... There's a vivid, repulsive truth in the way Walker renders his subjects-a sort of social truth, stripped of morality, which is rare and riveting. * New Yorker *
Cherry is a miracle of literary serendipity, a triumph... In these propulsive pages, Walker draws us right into the mind of an ordinary young man beset by his own and his country's demons. In the end, his only weapon against disintegration is his own devastating candor. * Washington Post *
The first great novel of the opioid epidemic. * New York Magazine *
It is full of slapstick comedy, despite gut-wrenching depictions of dope sickness, the futility of war and PTSD... [Walker] writes dialogue so musical and realistic you'll hear it in the air around you. * New York Times Book Review *
