Editorial Reviews

Review

''People I know who read A Death in the Family forty years ago still talk about it. So do I. It is a great book.'' --Andre Dubus, author of Dancing after Hours

''[James Agee's words] are so indelibly etched someplace inside of me that I couldn't reach to rub them out even if I wanted to. And I never want to.'' --Steve Earle, author of I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive

''The work of a writer whose power with English words can make you gasp.'' --New York Times Book Review

''Wonderfully alive.'' --New Yorker

''It is, in the full sense, poetry . . . The language of the book, at once luminous and discreet . . . remains in the mind.'' --New Republic

''Maturely and masterfully, Agee accomplished a book which touches one deeply and which no reader will forget.'' --New York Herald Tribune Book Review
