"Splendid...a beautifully textured novel...a distinguished work of art.... Walker Percy's perception luminously lights up obscure depths of experience without at the same time explaining that experience away." --The New York Times Book Review
"What a pleasure . . . His best nook since The Moviegoer . . . and among the most admirable American novels of the past few years." --The New Republic
"He is a beguiling, uniquely gifted novelist who deserves to be read in order and in full." --Newsweek
