Thomas Mallon

novelist and critic

Selected Works

Fiction
Finale is the book that Thomas Mallon's work has been building toward for years. It is the most entertaining and panoramic novel about American politics since Advise and Consent, more than a half century ago.
"Mallon himself is deliciously witty. But it is his political fluency and unstinting empathy that transform the Watergate debacle into a universal tragicomedy of ludicrous errors and malignant crimes, epic hubris and sorrow." --Booklist (starred review)
"Some of the most lucid prose in contemporary American literature . . . [Mallon's] best book yet."
--Los Angeles Times
"Retro in style, modern in sensibility, compact, imaginative, and wildly entertaining."
--San Francisco Chronicle
Essays
“An astute, exhilarating tour of the mailbag . . . a charming, discursive delight. ‘Yours Ever’ is nuanced, informed, full-blooded, a vigorous literary salute."
--New York Times Book Review
