Reviews

"Extraordinary. . . . Exhilarating. . . . These books do what novels are meant to do: they propose their own vivid and inexorable history." --The New York Times Book Review

"A towering work. . . . Bell has emerged as one of the most brilliant, artistic and daring historical novelists of our time. . . . He has created that rarest of works, a masterpiece."-Chicago Tribune

"Glows with unquenchable life. . . . Just as characters in The Stone are possessed by the lwa--spirits who guide souls--so too has Bell opened to the spirits of his characters, imagined and real." --Los Angeles Times

"Spellbinding. . . . Skillfully executed. . . . The author's portrait of Toussaint is astounding in its intensity, complexity and detail." --The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Must be considered among the most important artistic accomplishments of our . . . century. . . . Could easily cement Bell's reputation as one of his generation's greatest authors." --San Francisco Chronicle
