Reviews

"Wickedly funny. . . . Whitehead is making a strong case for a new name of his own: that of the best of the new generation of American novelists." --The Boston Globe

"A brilliant, witty, and subtle novel, written in a most engaging style, with tremendous aptness of language and command of plot."
--The New York Review of Books

"Terrific. . . . Inspired. . . . Engaging, exuding energy. . . . Will have you nodding in wonder." --The Miami Herald

"Dazzling. . . . Gorgeous, expertly crafted sentences. . . . An eloquent novel about racial identity in America." --Newsweek

"Brilliant. . . . Exhilarating. . . . What keeps you reading this critique of language is its language, and our perverse delight in the ingenious abuse of words." --The New York Times
