Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A beautiful novel.” Boston Globe
“Superb.” Saturday Review
“In Harrison’s hand the story is fresh with a gentle intuition.” Houston Chronicle
“A quiet triumph…Joseph is a man suffocated by everything he loves most in the world: the land and its ghosts, love and friendship, integrity. Yes, it is the old story again. Taking it and making it new, as Harrison has done, is a miracle on the order of the loaves and fishes. But then so are all good novels.” Washington Post
