Reviews

"Richly drawn...delicate and revealing...a winning novel."
-- Los Angeles Times
"Absorbing...and compelling....[A] rich first novel about the mysteries of human yearning."
-- Chicago Tribune
"Heaven Lake is a sort of Divine Comedy in reverse: a young man's trek through hell to get away from God. John Dalton has created such a compelling epic that the reader will gladly follow its hero, Vincent, on his scorching journey across China to find out how the world will punish and reward him. Our reward is this beautiful book."
-- Ann Patchett, author of Bel Canto
"Impeccably written...a thorough work of operatic feeling and proportion...stunning."
-- San Francisco Chronicle
"[An] evocative, beautiful exploration of modern-day China....Powerful and rewarding reading."
-- Booklist
