Review:

"A novel of finely articulated tragic power. . . . Little short of a work of genius." "--The New York Times Book Review" "Memorable. . . . Profound in its vision of humanity, of religion, and of art.""--The Wall Street Journal" "Such a feeling of freshness, of something brand-new. . . . Attention-holding and ultimately moving." "--The New York Times" "Engrossing and illuminating." "--Miami Herald"
