Reviews

"Remarkable . . . The effect is almost hallucinatory." --Frank Kermode, The New York Times Book Review

"Stunning . . . extraordinary . . . One of the freshest and most inventive novelistic uses of biblical material I have read." --Minneapolis Star Tribune

"A spiritual mystery of the best kind . . . Crace is a master at creating a convincing landscape out of evocative, earthy details . . . The creation of an ambitious imagination . . . A literary miracle." --USA Today

"A superb book . . . It succeeds thanks to Crace's potent, imaginative rendering of the characters and the setting, and because of its distinctive, lilting language." --Time Out New York

"Immensely impressive . . . This novel is a high-wire act, a tour de force, a garment expertly tailored from materials of the highest quality." --Bruce Bawer, The Washington Post Book World
