Reviews

"Simons Manigault is brother to all literary adolescents--Mailer's D.J., Salinger's Holden Caulfield, Joyce's Stephen Dedalus." --The New York Times Book Review
"Powell cleverly mocks the burdens of southern history . . . and plays Simons as the most outlandish southern poseur, but it's his awesome command of language that finally makes him a writer to reckon with." --Kirkus Reviews
"Powell's writing summons the climate and character of the South in a visceral way that only a few of its sons have managed." --Library Journal
