Reviews

Praise for Daniel Fuchs and The Brooklyn Novels

"Fuchs is a master. He had Pasternak's wonder at youth's encounter with the wider world, and Chekhov's nose for thwarted desire, and Turgenev's generosity to the barbarians of the new order."--The New Republic

"These novels capture, better than any of the better-known works of the time, the eerie tenor of the Great Depression, the sense of living without a past or any hope for the future. Fuchs' ability to replicate the quixotic energy of life on the streets of New York in this age of futility is unmatched by any of his contemporaries."--The Star Ledger

"The tenement tumult and its setting for what Fuchs called 'the daily mystery' are available for the first time in years. I am giving this to our son, who is part of Willliamsburg's vibrant young set, so he can read about a long-ago Brooklyn, then, as now, a crucible that shaped the American character."--Austin American-Statesman

"There is a touching, reflexive glance backward in much of what Fuchs writes -- a sense of the irretrievable in life."--Los Angeles Times Book Review
