Reviews

"A writer who has managed, willfully and even perversely, to remain his own man while offering his generous vision and versions of America."
--The Rea Award for the Short Story

"Relentless experimentalism, combined with a sly and often bawdy humour. . . [Coover is a] writer's writer, a hero to those who feel smothered by the marshmallowy welter of pseudo-literary romance that dominates contemporary fiction."
--The Guardian

"One of the most original and exciting writers around."
--Edwidge Danticat
