"If a novel can be measured by its imaginative precision, the shrewdness of its characterization and the authority of its prose, then The Poser, Jacob Rubin’s smart and absorbing debut, claims its power early and rarely surrenders it. "

"The Poser... seduces you with its fanciful prose, its larger-than-life characters and its fun-house-mirror take on a land of opportunity where appearance often trumps reality. It’s also one heck of a way for Rubin to announce his own presence on the literary stage."
