Editorial Reviews

Review

“Provocative...fascinating...dazzling.”―Ron Charles, The Washington Post

“An excellent introduction to Powers's work, a lighter, leaner treatment of his favorite themes and techniques...An engaging story-teller...even as he questions the conventions of narrative and character, Generosity gains in momentum and suspense.”―Jay McInerney, The New York Times Book Review

“Powers is a brilliantly imaginative writer, working here with a lightness of touch, a crisp sense of peace, and a distinct warmth...Powers shows both his reach as a student of humanity and his mastery as a storyteller.”―O, The Oprah Magazine

“When written by Dostoevsky, Dickens, or Richard Powers at his best, one may feel that [the novel] can contain every facet of the world.”―Michael Dirda, The New York Review of Books

“Powers fuses riveting narrative and spot-on dialogue with thought-provoking social analysis.”―Dan Cryer, Newsday

“One of our most exciting contemporary novelists.”―Amanda Gefter, Philadelphia Inquirer

"Powers is better than the best of almost anybody else."―John Leonard, Harper's Magazine

"Powers may well be one of the smartest novelists now writing."―Los Angeles Times

"One of our greatest novelists."―Booklist

"[Powers's] characters are unforgettable, flesh-and-blood individuals as finely drawn as those of any contemporary fiction writer."―Steve Weinberg, The Seattle Times

"To read his work is to be wowed by his verbal muscularity...admirable...wonderfully original."―Meg Wolitzer, The New York Times Book Review
