Indie Next ListOctober 2011
As Damascus, Mohr's third novel, is set in a bar, the comparisons to Charles Bukowski are inevitable. However, Mohr's worldview is far less caustic than Bukowski's. He gives readers a novel that pulls off the nearly impossible feat of breaking their hearts while lifting their souls and finds a lust for life in characters that have nothing left to lose. With Damascus, Mohr proves that he's the real deal: a talented writer who can take you to the edge without throwing you into the abyss. -- Gerry Donaghy, Powell's Books, Inc, Portland, OR
An ambitious, uplifting, and vital new work that underlines Joshua Mohr's relevance as a major American voice.
