Reviews

The New York Times Book Review An ebullient, philosophical novel...a many splendored and ennobling weaving together of thought, suffering, humor, and magic.
The Washington Post A brilliant novel of allegory, myth, and folk tales, and a vivid realism, very much in the American tradition...It is a novel of rare eloquence and originality, a fable that entertains and informs.
Black World One of the great American novels of this century...unqualifiedly good and extraordinarily beautiful.
