Praise

"An extraordinary achievement... very funny, original and deft, altogether lovable, poignant, rich with thought and feeling...immensely enjoyable.  John Gardner has become a major contemporary writer."- The New York Times

"A marvelous novel—absolutely marvelous: witty, intelligent, delightful... a celebration and a conservation of what we most need in one of the greatest poetic myths we have... I cannot recommend it too highly." - Newsweek


"It deserves a place on the same shelf as Lord of the Flies, Cat's Cradleand Catcher in the Rye."-Christian Science Monitor
