Reviews

"The depth of Chabon's thought, his sharp language, his inventiveness, and his ambition make this a novel of towering achievement."--The New York Times Book Review

"I'm not sure what the exact definition of a 'great American novel' is, but I'm pretty sure that Michael Chabon's sprawling, idiosyncratic, and wrenching new book is one."--New York

"The themes are masterfully explored, leaving the book's sense of humor intact and characters so tightly developed they could walk off the page."--Newsweek

"A page-turner in the most expansive sense of the word: its gripping plot pushes readers forward. . . . Chabon is a reader's writer, with sentences so cozy they'll wrap you up and kiss you goodnight."--Chicago Tribune
