Review:

"What he needed for his art had been supplied by his own person, by his mind, his wit."
Saul Bellow, from the Foreword"

"What he needed for his art had been supplied by his own person, by his mind, his wit."
--Saul Bellow, from the Foreword



"Recovery is a brilliantly written, masterful portrayal of man's battle with himself for survival."--Chicago Sun-Times

"What distinguishes Recovery from many fine and powerful fictions about alcoholism are the steps it takes into allegory and art."--Los Angeles Times

"The powerful statement of a man who was there and never came back."--Kirkus Reviews


"But if Recovery is a fragment, it is a dazzling fragment, every bit as rich and macaberesquely comic as anything in Berryman's better known poems."--The Independent

"Page after page, it displays humiliations and defeats. His novel, while written in prose, has the effect of a poem about the desolation of total selfpunishment. Sometimes, not even God and AA, acting in concert, can help with that."--National Post
