"Percival Everett is a genius. He's a brilliant writer and so damn smart I envy him." --Terry McMillan "Percival Everett has made a career out of flouting expectations . . . [forging] a nervy, caustic body of work that defies easy categorization . . . [The Water Cure] is one of the most elliptical, eccentric protest novels you're ever likely to read." --Los Angeles Times
