Dorothy Parker Esquire
June 1962 Nothing could tear me from [discussing collections of short stories] save this lovely book, A Long and Happy Life,
by Reynolds Price -- and I cannot even begrudge the author his youth. Meticulously observed, beautifully told, it strikes too deep to fuss around with analysis. You can say only of it that it is indeed a lasting novel, a story of the South done with no violence -- you can say only, a lovely novel, with the firm brilliance of its writing to keep its loveliness from sticking to your fingers. -- Review
