The New York Times…merciless and penetrating…Mountains of the Moon is a difficult and disturbing novel, a wormy nightmare pitched between hard covers. If there are Stieg Larsson-like moments, they emerge from a prose style that owes more to William Faulkner and Cormac McCarthy. Ms. Kay's utterances here are colloquial, bumpy, bordering on stream of consciousness. They often seem to be scratched onto a can with a rusty nail.
