Reviews

"Beautifully written, and hypnotically readable...the best story I know of in a long, long time."
--Vanity Fair

"Full of enchantment...a precise conjuring of an exceptional child's perceptions and feelings."
--Entertainment Weekly

"A big, old-fashioned book as satisfying as a fine evening at the symphony."
--Dallas Morning News

"A literary event...a grand saga...Body & Soul was written under the spell of Dickens, not to mention Stendhal, Tolstoy and the other 19th century titans...Conroy bedazzles readers!
--Chicago Tribune
