About the Author

John Hawkes (1925-1998) was a postmodern novelist born in Stamford, Connecticut, and educated at Harvard University. He was noted for his unconventional style and views on the creation of literature and was admired by Flannery O'Connor, Robert Penn Warren, Saul Bellow, Anthony Burgess, Jeffrey Eugenides, and Donald Barthelme.

Reviews

John Hawkes is an extraordinary writer. I have always admired his books. They should be more widely read.--Saul Bellow
A singularly gifted writer.
One of the steadily brightest (and paradoxically darkest) lights of American letters through our century's second half, a navigation star for scores of apprentice writers however different their own literary course. One of our most original literary imaginations and masterly prose stylists.--John Barth
