From the PublisherElle
Mournful, insightful, and mystical. It is also Mosley's best work of fiction.
A wonderful book...[with] characters who seem as real as the reader.
San Francisco Chronicle
Mosley has constructed a perfect Socrates for millennium's end — a principled man who finds that the highest meaning of life can be attained through self-knowledge, and who convinces others of the power and value of looking within.
Powerful...hard-hitting, unrelenting, poignant short fiction.
The New York Times Book Review
Mosley's style suits his subject perfectly. The prose is sand-papery, the sentence rhythms often rough and jabbing. But then — sudden surprise — we come upon moments of undefended lyricism.
Unveiling a new, bigger-than-life urban hero...Mosley...confer[s] on the mean streets of contemporary L.A. what filmmaker John Ford helped create for the American West: a gun-slinging mythology of street justice and a gritty, elegiac code of honor...A maverick protagonist.
Tough but touching stories.
Gritty and lyrical, the interlinked stories are stamped with Mosley's unique brand of street-smart comedy.
Sonoma County Independent
An insistently probing, philosophical gem...set in a world where standard notions of right and wrong have been blown to hell.
The Los Angeles Times Book Review
Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned is the work of a writer unafraid of pushing forward his own notions of responsibility and entitlement.
