Reviews

Wilson explains with great clarity the larger imaginative patterns of Percy's works as well as the related complexities that characterized his diagnosis of modern society.--Patrick Samway, SJ, author of Walker Percy: A Life
The small size of Wilson's primer on Walker Percy's novels belies its largeness of vision. There are no neat plot summaries to excuse readers from wrestling hard with Percy's five novels. On the contrary, she strikes right to their heart through succinct and sprightly analyses.--Ralph Wood, author of Tolkien among the Moderns
Wilson has written an indispensable guide for literary searchers and spiritual pilgrims through the Percy canon. To read this book is to discover--or rediscover--why Walker Percy meant so much to twentieth-century fiction, and why his message matters even more to twenty-first-century readers.--Rod Dreher, author of The Benedict Option: A Strategy for Christians in a Post-Christian Nation
