Editorial Reviews

Review

Michael Kobre's study of Walker Percy's fiction is original, deeply insightful, and well written. . . . This book is most impressive.

(John F. Desmond author of At the Crossroads: Ethical and Religious Themes in the Writings of Walker Percy)

Walker Percy's Voices is a powerful, convincing, and ground-breaking study of Percy. . . . It is an important addition to Percy scholarship.

(Robert H. Brinkmeyer Jr. author of The Art and Vision of Flannery O'Connor)

Michael Kobre's book on Percy has many fine qualities. Kobre delights in Percy's texts, quoting passages at length and to good effect. And although he refers adequately to the considerable body of Percy scholarship, he does so with a deft touch that leaves the lines of his own argument intact. This book could serve as an excellent introduction to the novels.

(John D. Sykes)
