Reviews

"This book of wonder is one of the most truly beautiful books of this or any season. . . . A triumph." -- Publishers Weekly

"A remarkable psalm of terror and celebration." -- Time magazine

"The book is a form of meditation, written with headlong urgency, about seeing. A reader's heart must go out to a young writer with a sense of wonder so fearless and unbridled. . . . There is an ambition about her book that I like...It is the ambition to feel." -- Eudora Welty, New York Times Book Review

"One of the most distinctive voices in American letters today." -- Boston Globe

"With Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, we suddenly find ourselves in the presence of an ecstatic and visionary genius. We are still there." -- Geoff Dyer

"Spirited and gale-force. . . . The best thing is her glee, a pied-piperish glee at being in the world, which she invokes better than anyone else." -- The Guardian

"Here is no gentle romantic twirling a buttercup...Miss Dillard is stalking the reader as surely as any predator stalks its game...Here is not only a habitat of cruelty and 'the waste of pain, ' but the savage and magnificent world of the Old Testament, presided over by a passionate Jehovah with no Messiah in sight...A remarkable psalm of terror and celebration." -- Melvin Maddocks, Time
