  • "Roth is a living master"

    New York Review of Books
  • "When She Was Good, both its sustained theme and its detail work, is a step above most recent novels... Roth is a serious writer, willing to turn his face against fashion and the expected, and to take improbable chances'"

    New York Times
  • "High, careful tragedy, nasty as life, and Roth emerges...as a Dreiser who can write!"

    Stanley Elkin
  • "Compassion mingles with horror in a superb portrayal of a young woman's obsession with moral rectitude"

    Saturday Review
