Reviews

"A tour de force." --Chicago Tribune

"Besides Joyce and Faulkner, other twentieth-century novelists whose work Allen's calls to mind are Dos Passos, Ellison and Henry Roth--an indication of the remarkable literary company in which this novel may be seen to move." --The New York Times Book Review
