PRAISE FOR JAMESTOWN A work of hectic brilliance and immense sadness.--Laura Miller, Salon Sharpe's wit relies primarily on the juxtaposition of profundity and silliness, tragedy and absurdity, a kind of Catch-22 about the 17th century for the 21st century. Jamestown is packed with marvelous material, moving and funny and deeply provocative.--The Washington Post Book World
