• "Roth's best novel yet"

    London Review of Books
  • "I had only to read the two opening sentences to realize that I was once again in the hands of a superbly endowed storyteller"

    New York Review of Books
  • "Further evidence that Roth can do practically anything with fiction. His narrative power - the ability to delight the reader simultaneously with the telling and the tale - is superb"

    Washington Post
  • "His prose is immaculate yet curiously plain and unostentatious, as natural as brething"

    Al Alvarez
