What They're Saying About Thor Garcia:
"Thor Garcia . . .
brings to mind the best bits of John Kennedy Toole’s A Confederacy of
Dunces; the novels and short stories of Charles Bukowski; Bret Easton
Ellis’ American Psycho and the gonzo journalism of Hunter S. Thompson,
all made to feel at home within the unique, effortless likeability of
Garcia’s own literary persona. . . . Highly recommended."
- B O D Y International Literary Review
“[Garcia's] panoramas may mesh together, the paranoias and detachments of the various characters
may echo each other, but the overall result is a seductive, disturbing
vision of life and one way of relating to it, as spectator to spectacle,
as victim to one’s own agency, actions and inactions.”
- DecomP Magazine
“Presents fascinating ideas about society and the media.”
- PANK Magazine
sets out to drink himself to death, a true booze-head living in a
worm-infested apartment in the heart of a ghetto, alienating most of the
women he encounters if given enough time, spurning the rest, often
beaten up and otherwise brutalized while somehow carrying more than his
load. . . . Sicker than what Celine presents, for certain, but then the
world is sicker now than in Celine’s day by any rational measure.
“It's hard to imagine writing that is more energetic.”
