Reviews

"A capacious, complex novel. There's so much going on you can't miss a line, but you wouldn't want to." --Chicago Tribune

"[Century's Son] is utterly compelling....Perhaps the loveliest surprise of this terrific novel is how easily Boswell moves from the absurd to the tragic without comment, excuse, or explanation." --The Washington Post Book World

"Unexpectedly deep and effective...Against an increasingly interconnected world, Boswell sets his vision of one family's painful, incomplete, unorthodox but still stirring return to life as an irremediably private matter." --The New York Times Book Review

"Stunning...Cross Anne Tyler with Michael Chabon and you'd get a cast something like the one Boswell has bred." --Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
