Praise for The Delightful Life of a Suicide Pilot
"Wry, culturally incisive and utterly captivating."
-The Washington Post
"A quirky, fiendishly clever series that has long been one of my absolute favorites."
-Bruce Tierney, BookPage, Starred Review
Praise for the Dr. Siri Paiboun investigations
"This wonderful series has consistently managed to convey the beauty and sadness of this damaged country through the wisdom and humor of its protagonist."
-The Boston Globe
"Cotterill has a gift for tempering bad stuff-specifically, the baffling and chaotic political climate of communism circa 1980-with gently ironic humor and frequent doses of slightly kooky occultism. His books are thus a welcome balm for our own current baffling and chaotic political climate."
-The Seattle Times
"Tragically funny and magically sublime."
"[Dr. Siri] has rarely been funnier or more astute. Cotterill is writing at the top of his game."
-Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"A weird and wonderful series."
-Booklist, Starred Review
