Reviews

"A novel of finely articulated tragic power. . . . Little short of a work of genius." --The New York Times Book Review

"Memorable. . . . Profound in its vision of humanity, of religion, and of art."--The Wall Street Journal "Such a feeling of freshness, of something brand-new. . . . Attention-holding and ultimately moving." --The New York Times "Engrossing and illuminating." --Miami Herald
