Reviews

"An extraordinary, imaginative achievement that plays over the reader's senses with boldness, grace, and daring." --John Hawkes

"A highly original, brilliant tale of a self-centered, solitary dilettante whose dreams take over his life." --New York Post

"Originality, economy of language, brilliance . . . There is a Kafka-esque quality to The Benefactor." --Newsday

"Remarkable . . . Its ancestors are Baudelaire, Kafka, and perhaps in the distance Dostoyevsky and Proust." --John Wain

"A major writer . . . I especially admired how she can make a real story out of dreams and thoughts." --Hannah Arendt
