Praise for Selected Blackouts: "[A] remarkable first book full of keenly observed characters and delightful comic invention. [...] [Goldbach's] prose and his well-constructed plots make his short stories into mini-novels, full of rich character development and the heart-searing pity that lies at the root of the best comedy" – Tom Sandborn, The Globe and Mail
The Devil and The Detective: "The world has hitherto been divided into plotters who wrote in shoddy sentences and linguistic aesthetes who wrote beautiful sentences but couldn't make anything happen on the page, no plot. Goldbach manages to do both – a thrilling plot and beautiful language. He has raised the bar for both murder mysteries and literary writing." – Josip Novakovich
