Reviews

"[Michael Chabon] has a captivating, fluid way of writing that surrounds and shields these bewildered people with descriptions and observations both apt and moving . . . When you read these stories, it may strike you how seldom you come across really beautiful writing . . . Chabon's writing is unique. It's truthful and lyrical, and it bestows on these troubled children of his imagination a measure of grace." --Susan Kelly, " USA Today"
"Mr. Chabon writes with enormous fluency in these pages, captivating the reader with his descriptive and metaphoric powers." --Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times"
"A loving craftsman and the author of superb, seemingly alchemically rendered sentences, Chabon has been producing pitch-perfect, at times even dazzling, fiction . . . While his language has relinquished none of its vividness, Chabon has mellowed it into an elegant vessel of irony and empathy." --Michael Carroll," Los Angeles Times Book Review"
