Praise for A Man Came Out of a Door in the Mountain:
“An ingenious tale of myth, magic and murder….told in rich prose….[An] auspicious debut.”–Seattle Times
“Hypnotic…tantalizing…lush and evocative…Literary and genre lovers alike can find a striking new voice to celebrate in A Man Came Out of A Door in the Mountain.” –Kansas City Star
"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
“In mesmerizing prose, debut novelist Harun spins a chilling tale shot through with both aching realism and age-old folktales, melding them together to capture a landscape lush with possibility and imagination and terrifying in its vast emptiness.”
—Booklist, starred review
“Intertwining with real-world pain and loss, this debut novel gains an extra sense of risk and realism, pitting ordinary, human evil against supernatural wickedness.”
–The Globe and Mail
“Much as it does to the novel’s characters, the gothic ambiance wraps around the reader and won’t let go.”
