Review:

"Heartfelt emotion, communicated in clean direct prose . . . a remarkable achievement."--Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times"

"A powerful novel that belongs on the shelf with the works of Flannery O'Connor, Carson McCullers, and Eudora Welty. It is a moving evocation of the small-town South in the mid-twentieth century, and it is an expertly crafted tale of an adolescent boy finding the courage to make the decisions to change his life."--William McKeen, "Orlando Sentinel"

"John Kennedy Toole's tender, nostalgic side is as brilliantly effective as his corrosive satire. If you liked "To Kill A Mockingbird" you will love "The Neon Bible"."--Florence King

"Shockingly mature. . . . Even at sixteen, Toole knew that the way to write about complex emotions is to express them simply."--Kerry Luft, "Chicago Tribune"
