Reviews

"A bold and strenuous collection . . . Vollmann's gifts include passion, amplitude, a deep love and knowledge of the underside of urban life in San Francisco, and a dark and gruesome humor." --The Washington Post

"Rainbow suggests the extraordinary range and fire of Vollmann's style. . . . He writes with a fierce and bright-hued sensibility." --Los Angeles Times

"A domineering display of a rare talent . . . Vollmann is staking out an intelligent universe worth exploring for thirty more years." --Chicago Tribune
