About the Author

Walker Percy wrote several books, many of them bestsellers, and is considered one of the greatest American writers of our time.

Reviews

"These moving pieces of nonfiction, some quite brief and terse, others more relaxed and spacious, offer 'signposts' that will help us understand not only the 'strange land' that is late-20th-century America, but the extraordinary mind of an especially alert and knowing observer." --Robert Coles, Boston Sunday Globe

"Tart, lively, and likeable. You come away admiring not only the writer's sense and sensibility, his sophistication and intelligence, but, more important, his wisdom and courage." --George Core, The Washington Post Book World

"Percy is always intelligent, always civilized, never blind to his opponents' point of view." --Evelyn Toynton, The New York Times Book Review

"Remarkably revealing . . . Signposts shows Percy in all of his moral and intellectual grandeur . . . What shines through, however, is Percy's fundamental decency, his compassiona for the human predicament, and his abundant love for humanity." --Jonathan Kirsch, Los Angeles Times
