The Washington Post raved over Valiant Gentlemen—from ZSH author Sabina Murray—calling it “superb,” “wise,” and “illuminating,” and asserting that Murray’s “present-tense prose is alternately epigrammatic and elliptical, and her dialogue sometimes Wilde-worthy.” Vice also reviewed the book as part of their “November’s Best Books, Music, and Movies” feature. And David Leavitt, writing in the New York Times Book Review, called it “as vigorous, audacious and unpredictable as [Sir Roger] Casement himself,” referring to the novel’s main character.
