Reviews

"Horrifying, hilarious, and outlandish. . . . These straightforward tales grip you as unrelentingly as the suckered appendages of the giant squid Grann attempts to track down in 'The Squid Hunter.'"
--"Entertainment Weekly "(Grade: A)
"A gripping read. . . . Obsessives get themselves into some interesting places. Grann is the perfect guide to take you there."
--"The Miami Herald"
"A dozen intricately crafted accounts. . . . Like the best of stories, each carries the spice of intrigue and the momentum of a search. . . . [They] will make your heart race and, at times, ache. They're stories to share with friends, even if Grann can't be there himself."
--"Cleveland Plain Dealer"
"Grann's obsession with how narratives are told is complex and compelling. . . . But it's the basic stories themselves--bizarre and fascinating, bolstered by exhaustive research--that make the book so gripping."
--"Time Out New York"
"Titillating. . . . Evidence of Grann'

Praise for "The Devil and Sherlock Holmes":
"A gifted storyteller, Grann has a Sherlock Holmesian gift for unearthing facts that are hidden in plain sight, presenting a crystal-clear narrative and letting his compelling cast of characters speak for themselves.....Easily worth the price of admission, a visit to Grann's rogue's gallery is likely to leave you with a sense, at once awful and awesome, of the profound desire we all have for recognition." --"Portland Oregonian"
"Grann's obsession with how narratives are told is complex and compelling...But it's the basic stories themselves -- bizarre and fascinating, bolstered by exhaustive research -- that make the book so gripping." --"TimeOut" New York
Praise for David Grann’s acclaimed "New York Times" Bestseller, "The Lost City of Z"
“At  once a biography, a detective story and wonderfully vivid piece of travel writing . . . suspenseful . . . rollicking . . .Fascinating reads with all the pace and excitem
