ALA Booklist has named A Man Came Out of a Door in the Mountain as one of the Top 10 SF/Fantasy/Horror titles of 2014.
Claire Vaye Watkins reviews A Man Came Out of a Door in the Mountain for the New York Times Book Review: “A Man Came Out of a Door in the Mountain” proves that Harun is heir apparent to Louise Erdrich and Harry Crews. Her characters shimmer and squirm in liminal spaces, nether regions of geography, race, spirituality and aesthetics. This novel is a mesmerizing incantation, harrowing and hypnotic."
"Let me put it like this: in a just world, A Man Came Out of a Door in the Mountain would be making headlines. You’d be reading about mammoth advances and film sales and think pieces. In a just world, it would be the big buzz book of the season. Instead, it’s a spectacular read, one you can come to fresh. And come to it you should. No, you must." Robert Wiersema, Vancouver Sun
