Born in Stamford, Connecticut, and educated at Harvard University, Hawkes taught at Brown University for thirty years. Praised by Leslie Fiedler, Flannery O'Connor, and William H. Gass, who wrote, when it comes to the engravement of the sentence . . . no one can match him, Hawkes was the author of numerous acclaimed novels, including The Lime Twig, The Beetle Leg, Second Skin, Adventures in the Alaskan Skin Trade and The Passion Artist.

Reviews

The sixth and most accessible novel by, feasibly, our best writer. . . The book's principal attribute is its relentless originality.--Thomas McGuane
John Hawkes here has written the mature work of a great artist. An artist finally accessible, whose language, images, and sounds present an astonishing vision.--Jacques Cabau
Rich, evocative, highly original piece of fiction. It gilds contemporary American literature with real, not synthetic, gold.--Anthony Burgess
