"A mystery that doubles as a sly work of serious literature. . . . This novel is a quick read and a true jewel."
"I'm Gone combines the policier, the cultural essay and the urban sex novel to create a vivid, entertaining, hybrid."
—The New York Times Book Review
"Combining the offhand wit of Raymond Chandler with the narrative agility of Peter Høeg, Echenoz crafts a clever, philosophical tale."
"With a wink and a nod and an easy manner of style, Echenoz all but tells us outright not to take any of this too seriouslyto enjoy I'm Gone in the same devil-may-care spirit in which it is offered."
—The Boston Sunday Globe
"A mordantly humorous work."
"Echenoz both employs and subverts the convention of the adventure and detective genres in this sly send-up of contemporary art life."
