Críticas:

"Like the question it poses, Did You Ever Have a Family is brutally direct yet it's got an enormous symbolic power. You hold in your hands a great book of kindness--every restrained, exquisite sentence comes loaded for bear. It's been a lot of years since a novel has so moved me. Number Bill Clegg among that endangered species: major American writer."--Darin Strauss, author of CHANG & ENG

PRAISE FOR "PORTRAIT OF AN ADDICT AS A YOUNG MAN"
"Bill Clegg's "Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man" stands up to Frederick Exley's great memoir of alcoholism, A Fan's Notes . . . . But really, forget comparisons. Read the book."--Michael Cunningham, author of THE HOURS

"Mesmerizing...reading it is like letting the needle down on a Nick Drake album. [Clegg] tells his story in short, atmospheric paragraphs, each separated by white space, each its own strobe-lighted snapshot of decadent poetic memory...."Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man "is the lightly narcotized sensorium of Mr. Clegg's prose."--Dwight Garner "The New York Times "

"Bill Clegg... has written a streamlined, hair-raising, high-torque memoir...Even though we know how the story must end, it's hard to believe Clegg will survive the ordeal he describes in such horrific detail."--Jay McInerney "Vanity Fair "

PRAISE FOR "DID YOU EVER HAVE A FAMILY"
"I marveled my way through "Did You Ever Have a Family, " at not just the masterful writing and storytelling, but at the emotional authenticities of every persuasion. It's a wondrous thing when a writer gets things this right, this absorbing, and this beautiful. Bravo, Bill Clegg, and thank you."--Elinor Lipman, author of THE VIEW FROM PENTHOUSE B

"You won't be able to stop reading until it's all gone - and you will crave more...what makes Clegg's book especially riveting is the remarkable speed of his vertiginous fall from grace...."Portrait "is a spare, elegant book, one that shows admirable restraint in the face of extreme, even pathological behavior ("A Million Little Pieces" this is not.) Clegg may not have been able to control his demons, but he is utterly in charge of this material, with a voice that is knowing and self-deprecating in exactly the right measure."--Jonathan Van Meter "Vogue "

PRAISE FOR "DID YOU EVER HAVE A FAMILY"
"A brilliantly constructed debut set in the aftermath of catastrophic loss."--2015 Man Booker Prize Judges (Longlist Finalist)

It's a wondrous thing when a writer gets things this right, this absorbing, and this beautiful. Bravo, Bill Clegg, and thank you."--Bestselling author Elinor Lipman

"Full of small-town secrets and whispers, Bill Clegg has woven a richly textured tale of loss and healing. This is a deeply optimistic book about the power of human sympathy to pull us from the wreckage of our fate."--Man Booker Prize-winning novelist Anne Enright
