Blurbs, Press & Reviews

“William Jensen’s compelling debut novel touches a central mystery of contemporary American life: How can a boy manage to become a man when all the models he has are numb, angry, damaged—or absent altogether?”
—John Benditt, author of The Boatmaker

“This is a novel to read and consider. And one with a resonance that will not be easily be dismissed from the reader’s memory.”
—Craig Terlson, author of Fall in One Day

“I have a feeling that this debut novel of William’s is only the tip of the ice berg, for the amount and depth of the stories he has yet to share with us.”
—Chris Riley, author of The Sinking of the Angie Piper

“William Jensen’s Cities of Men manages the remarkable”
—Manhattan Book Review
