Reviews
"Clear, rain-washed prose ...In Allegra Goodman's ebullient, bittersweet, plaintive Song of Sharon, the heroine's true achievement is finding poetry in.becoming who she's been all along."
--The New York Times Book Review

"[The] narrator, that Sharon Spiegelman, has one of the most enchanting, idiosyncratic voices since Augie March."
--The Washington Post Book World

"With Sharon Spiegelman, Goodman has created a Huck Finn for the modern age, drifting down the river of American spirituality."
--The Christian Science Monitor

"Like Saul Bellow and Philip Roth before her, Goodman has achieved a breakthrough book."
--Time
