  • A terrific novel of echoing sadness

    Julian Barnes
  • It's simply a novel about a guy who goes to college and becomes a teacher. But its one of the most fascinating things that you've ever come across

    Tom Hanks, Time
  • I was stunned by it... beautifully written in simple but brilliant prose, a novel of an ordinary life, an examination of a quiet tragedy, the work of a great but little-known writer

    Guardian
  • One of the great unheralded 20th century American novels...Almost perfect

    Bret Easton Ellis
  • One of the great forgotten novels of the past century. I have bought at least 50 copies of it in the past few years, using it as a gift for friends. It is universally adored by writers and readers alike...so beautifully paced and cadenced that it deserves the status of classic

    Guardian
