Editorial Reviews

Review

Janet Burroway The New York Times Book Review A chronicler of decency, pluck and joy, in novel after novel [Price] has given us the weight and worth of the ordinary.

Eudora Welty Reynolds Price is the most impressive new writer I've come across in a long time.

Dorothy Parker Esquire Meticulously observed, beautifully told...it is indeed a lasting novel...a lovely novel, with the firm brilliance of its writing to keep its loveliness from sticking to your fingers.

William Hogan San Francisco Chronicle Lively, lusty, affectionate, preposterous, entertaining and well done.

The Washington Post At the end, the reader has the sense that all has been resolved and explained as well as may be in a universe that, if full of mysteries, still makes fundamental sense....Delightful and thought-provoking.
