Review:

"Dazzling . . . a book that forces us to reassess the American Dream and the crucial role that faith (and the longing for faith) have played in shaping the national soul."--"The New York Times"
"Stirring and captivating and beautifully written . . . This is the Updike of the Rabbit books, who can take you uphill and down with his grace of vision, his gossamer language, and his merciful, ironic glance at the misery of the human condition."--"The Boston Globe
"
"Updike's genius, his place beside Hawthorne and Nabokov have never been more assured."--George Steiner, "The New Yorker"
