Review:

"A gigantic achievement that glows and grows long after it is put aside." - "Independent on Sunday" "An expansive and liberating adventure of tests, quests, miracles and coincidences--It stands as a well-weathered, very benign, widespreading kind of tree, drawing sustenance from the dark earth of a 20th-century experience, and allowing all kinds of unexpected illuminations to shine through." - "Observer" "A major novel--profound--frequently funny, sometimes painful, sometimes moving that asks fundamental questions about the nature of experience." - "The Scotsman"
