Review:

New York Times Notable Book of the Year "Physical closeness to the natural world underscores all the best imagery in Sweet Eyes... Ms. Agee is a gifted poet of that dark lushness in the heart of the American landscape." New York Times Book Review "A big, complicated book about small-town life, in the great American tradition of Faulkner, Willa Cather, and Sherwood Anderson." Philadelphia Inquirer "This is a multileveled and sensitive novel about victimization and the struggle to defeat it... [Agee] clearly shows herself to be a significant new novelist." Chicago Tribune "While Agee demonstrates that the roots of psychosis and violence often start within the family, she also makes a case for the family's importance--and for the necessity of self-esteem--writing with fearless precision and evocative detail." Publishers Weekly "Agee's prose and her protagonist's astute observations give us a real sense of what is stifling and what is transcendent in rural America." Booklist
