How THESE WERE Found out was reviewed favorably in The Believer, American Publication Review, as well as the Rumpus. At HTMLGiant, Kyle Small had written that “Matt Bell has generated a national status by himself terms, completely beyond your support program of NY publishing, on the effectiveness of his tales and novellas, that are wholly unique and singularly his personal. He’s that rare type of article writer whose function the audience would recognize actually if were released anonymously. It really is officially daring, high-stakes, languaged-up stuff, and (lucky us!), the very best of it offers finally been gathered at book size.”
