Reviews

Suzanne Ruta The New York Times Book Review Rich, intriguing...a mix of myth, allegory, Victorian children's tale, and adventure yarn, laced with readings in Southwest history.
The Boston Globe Confident and beautifully written.
Irene Warner The Seattle Times Book Review Rich, generous, funny, and ambitious, thought provoking and rewarding.
Nadya Labi Time Silko has crafted a dreamlike tale out of one of the ugliest realities in American history.
Therese Stanton Ms. The historical, geographical, and emotional scope of this sprawling novel is breathtaking. Silko tells and retells the stories of multicultural America and weaves them into the "master" narrative of American history.
Philip Connors Newsday A tender, evocative tale.
Alexs Pate Minneapolis Star-Tribune You can depend on Leslie Marmon Silko to seduce and captivate you with her considerable literary powers. Her dreamlike narratives deliver amazing truths. With Gardens in the Dunes, Silko has crafted a book about faith in the old ways, in the natural ways of life, about the significance of a family and a girl's indomitable spirit.
Denise Low The Kansas City Star Silko writes descriptions as lush as rose petals. A cosmopolitan, spellbinding narrative.
David A. Walton San Jose Mercury News Silko's appeal is her ability to transcend with her story the obvious ethnic, feminist, and ecological messages so deeply embedded in her material....[Her] fiction is rooted in the real world and conveys the eternal messages of story land: love won and lost, separation and reunion, a child's growth and arrival into adulthood.
Melissa Levine San Francisco Chronicle Like Gabriel Garcรญa Mรกrquez, but more accurately reminiscent of Joseph Conrad...a rich descendant well worth reading.
