MEDIA REVIEWS
"Naeem Murr has a hideously beautiful imagination and a wholly original talent" -- Mary Gaitskill
"[Murr's] prose bursts into flower, taking us straight to the passionate heart of his characters. Words and phrases take on an almost translucent elasticity, stretching to encompass new ideas, giving scenes a compelling visual wholeness and suggesting real complexity" * Independent on Sunday *
"Clever and intense, Murr's writing captures the extraordinary power of human ties" * Time Out *
"The Genius of the Sea is not simply about a man in crisis, it is the story of each of us in our struggle to be intimate, to build faith, and to deserve love" -- Akhil Sharma
