Reviews of

Drive

“Full throttle . . . Sallis’ riveting novella reads the way a Tarantino or Soderbergh neo-noir plays, artfully weaving through Driver’s haunted memory and fueled by confident storytelling and keen observations about moviemaking, low-life living, and, yes, driving. Short and not so sweet, Drive is one lean, mean, masterful machine.

Entertainment Weekly

“Imagine the heart of Jim Thompson beating in the poetic chest of James Sallis and you’ll have some idea of the beauty, sadness and power of Drive . . . [It] has more thought, feeling and murderous energy than books twice its length.”

Chicago Tribune

“One stark and stunning tale of murder, treachery, and deceit . . . [Drive] packs a wallop.”

Boston Globe

“A perfect piece of noir fiction . . . focus[ing] on those hollowed-out moments when a man’s moral landscape suddenly shifts and he’s plunged into darkness.”

The New York Times Book Review

“Imagine the heart of Jim Thompson beating in the poetic chest of James Sallis and you’ll have some idea of the beauty, sadness and power of Drive.”
