Reviews

A book like few others. Politically well-versed and stylistically a work of art.
A brilliant, quirky entertainment.
A village fully in the present, yet rife with legends. In Before The Feast, this villagetells its own story--a novel as compelling multi-voiced chorale put in prose.
Before the Feast is a big book in every sense: it's vibrant, compassionate, and knowing. Stanisic channels an almost reckless energy into a novel that's at once sprawling and controlled.--Stephen Sparks, Green Apple Books on the Park
