Reviews

"[A] brilliant imagination...Every page is a delight worth savoring for a millennium or two." --USA Today

"One of the most original and oddly moving novels in some time...funny, touching, haunting...If you don't fall under the spell of Sherrill's Minotaur, so human in his needs and longings, you probably should be tossed in the labyrinth yourself." --The Charlotte Observer

"Darkly intelligent and sometimes dazzling. The Minotaur is a complex and sympathetic creation, conspicuous yet socially invisible. What's more, he's here to stay." --Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"[A] comic, bittersweet first novel...Sherrill reveals himself as that most endangered of literary species, a crafty, talented novelist who's not afraid to show his heart." --Chicago Tribune

"[Sherrill] can make images luminesce with the reflected light of language." --San Diego Union-Tribune
