Review:

"Nothing in the World is a mesmerizing tale of expulsion and return: this is as much a trance as a story. Roy Kesey is a fearless and very welcome new writer." --Anthony Doerr

"In haunting, evocative prose, Roy Kesey captures the horrors of war, the insanity of genocide, as well as the fleeting joys of love. Nothing in the World is a memorable debut." --Laila Lalami

"Kesey has created a quietly brilliant protest against war, an exquisitely rendered tale in the absurdist spirit of such classics as Slaughterhouse-Five and Catch-22." --Daniel Olivas, The El Paso Times

"I'm still buzzing from Roy Kesey's prize-winning novella, Nothing in the World. I'm always impressed at how he can inhabit fictional worlds that appear to be far from his own experience." --Phillip Graham, National Book Critics Circle

"It's gruesome and harrowing and funny and sad, and you should get yourself a copy right freaking now." --Pasha Malla, The Morning News
