Reviews

'A well-drawn world and characters in a completely original and unpredictable setting... I don't know a more enjoyable or intelligent writer of his kind.'-Michael Moorcock

'[A] Sliding Doors-esque literary fantasy... Mr. Breakfast is an absorbing study of what really matters in life.' - SciFiNow

"Few recent works of fiction in any genre have touched on the vagaries of life, love, and art more movingly or with deeper understanding. An intoxicating, deeply affecting novel by the influential fantasist." - Kirkus, STARRED review

"A compulsively readable, introspective tale about the road not taken... At its heart, this is an arresting and imaginative meditation on life. Perfect for fans of magical realism with a free-flowing style like that of David Mitchell and Toshikazu Kawaguchi." - Library Journal

"Both wistfully melancholy and downright joyous."
-- Locus Magazine

"As always with the exceptionally imaginative Carroll, he creates complex worlds for his hero to inhabit and with clever crossovers between realms that are carefully thought out and fun to explore. Carroll's attention to details is impressive, and the unexpected prevails." - Booklist

"This is both a characteristic book-a part of the Carroll mosaic-and a unique one. I love the refractions as early scenes are reconsidered in light of later ones. I slowed down in the last third, to savor the gorgeous intricacies. I love the humor-the sly humor, and the dumb jokes and the surreally-simple/simply-surreal word combinations that are always Jonathan Carroll's signature."
- Jonathan Lethem, author of the New York Times-bestselling Motherless Brooklyn

"A beautiful, brilliant meditation on art, love, inspiration and what makes life worthwhile." - Neil Gaiman

"Like Murakami, Brian Eno, or David Lynch, Jonathan Carroll is entirely sui generis, someone whose work is so fresh, weird, and original, it stands in a class of its own. Maybe the most striking thing about this lean, remarkable novel is Carroll's caffeinated curiosity about everything, his roving eye for everyday wonders, for the effervescent in the banal. Mr. Breakfast is a small book of big ideas, a set of Russian nesting dolls with an entire universe glowing at the center." -Joe Hill, bestselling author of Heart-Shaped Box

"Reading Jonathan Carroll, one thinks of a blind person stroking a drugged tiger-an experience that is sensuous, dreamy, and dangerous all at once. And then, of course, the tiger wakes up." - Bruce Wagner, author of Dead Stars
