Mortimer of the Maghreb Reviews
"The stories Shukman tells are a warning to men who have let their pursuits become too one-dimensional--and seldom are such warnings handed over with landscapes this compelling." - Booklist.
"A skillfully crafted, eclectic collection." - Kirkus Reviews.
"Fearless, brilliantly realized . . . English romanticism took the exile and turned him into the expatriate . . . Henry Shukman is too gifted a writer to push this cultural scrim into the foreground, but its the unseen backdrop that binds together his richly rewarding new collection of short fiction, Mortimer of the Maghreb." - The Los Angeles Times.
"To be honest, I was relieved to be done with Mortimer's gloom and self-pity, and I read Shukman's three remaining stories with greater pleasure. While his new anti-heroes are also alcoholically challenged, he displays a great deal more humor in the Caribbean than he did in the Maghreb." - The New York Times.
