PRAISE FOR "ALL THE KING'S MEN""Over the course of more than two centuries of vivid political history, there is perhaps only one full-blooded American novel of politics that plunges deep into the hearts of its characters and therefore into the hearts of its readers, thus rising to the top ranks of American fiction. That is Robert Penn Warren's lush "All the King's Men"."--"Los Angeles Times Book Review""It's a measure of the enduring worth of "All the King's Men" that Willie Stark has entered our collective literary consciousness, in the company of Captain Ahab, Huck Finn, Jay Gatsby, Holden Caulfield, Rabbit Angstrom, and very few others."--Joyce Carol Oates, "The New York Review of Books"About the Author:
Robert Penn Warren (1905-1989) American poet, novelist, and critic, was recipient of no fewer than three Pulitzer Prizes and named the country's first poet laureate.
