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."

Listen to a great conversation between Adrianne and Brad Listi on Other People.
