"Eric Laurrent [is] decidedly one of the most virtuosic of our
young writers." -- Jean-Claude Lebrun
"[Laurrent's] books are impressive ones, both by virtue of their quality and their range." -- Warren Motte
"A small, admirably crafted novel, on the whole, conceived to delight and exasperate all at once. A successful wager, as always." -- Bernard Quiriny
"Mr. Laurrent has a taste for lexical rarities and delights in scientific descriptions....Mr. Laurrent's hyper-realistic writing gives forlorn and silently political snapshots of contemporary Paris."
"Part of Laurrent's talent lies in his ability to reinvent (or perhaps subvert) a commonplace theme by means of language as well as humor. Together they allow the author to maintain an ironic distance that aptly reflects the modern condition." -- Donald J. Dziekowicz
