Review:

The return of Slow Fade is a fine thing. It's Rudy Wurlitzer's greatest work of fiction . . . and one of the best American books there is.”  Alex Cox, director, Repo Man and Sid & Nancy



Slow Fade comes out of the space between real life and the movies and closes it up for good. A great book: beautiful, funny, and dangerous.”  Michael Herr, screenwriter, Full Metal Jacket



If you splice Rudy Wurlitzer's Slow Fade to his other four novels, they become a beautiful quintet, never losing their miraculous beat.”  Robert Downey, director, Hugo Pool and Putney Swope



Slow Fade may be the most traditional of Wurlitzer's novels, and the time-honored pleasures of the novel are here in abundance: a twisting and turning story about fathers and sons, power and poverty, violence and fate. Some may read it as a 'roman a clef' about certain notorious Hollywood players, but that seems rather secondary to me. Wurlitzer has fashioned a rare and wonderful thing a deeply spiritual novel, without one whiff of incense or candle wax.”  Scott Spencer, author, Endless Love and Waking the Dead
