Praise for Percival Everett:
". . . Artful and literate, Everett explores the philosophical, the metaphysical, the physical and the psychological boundaries of human life . . ."
". . . Everett achieves a primal sense of dislocation, forcing us to question how we determine the limits of the human . . . "
--Sven Birkets, The New York Times
". . . The audacious, uncategorizable Everett. He mixes genre and tone with absolute abandon, never does the same song twice. Brilliant . . ."
--The Boston Globe
". . . An author who dances with language as effortlessly as Fred Astaire."
--Daniel Quinn, author of Ishmael
