"John Crowley has long been one of our country's absolutely finest novelists, the equivalent in what could generally called Fantastika to John Le Carre in spy literature, and in KA he has given us a masterpiece in the form of a beast fable. Sentence by beautiful sentence, the book sustains its ravishing narrative above a constant awareness of the duality, partiality, and mystery of our own goals, desires, and excitements. An entirely grown-up wisdom and hard-won grace suffuse every scene. Quietly, subtly, the tale of Dar Oakley entertains its readers, for sure, but expands and enhances them as well."---- Peter Straub, New York Times bestselling author of INTERIOR DARKNESS and GHOST STORY
"John Crowley is one of the finest writers of our time.
In sum, Ka is just the kind of deeply moving, deeply personal "late work" that a great artist sometimes produces at the end of his or her career."---- Michael Dirda, "The Washington Post "
