Despite its deadpan tone, the novel has a strange dramatic thrust. Haskell’s forte is making the most mundane happenings into cliffhangers.

- Bomb


John Haskell’s latest novel, Out of My Skin, is a surefooted, yet deeply odd, book.

- TimeOut

This book is a rebellion against the novel, even as it inhabits the form.

  There’s something simple about the questions raised—Who are we? What makes us us?—but Mr. Haskell’s writing is weirdly mesmerizing, which lends his work an enticing air of profundity. And that’s why, though it will only take a few hours to read, Out of My Skin will linger with you long after.
