“Splendid...a beautifully textured novel...a distinguished work of art.... Walker Percy's perception luminously lights up obscure depths of experience without at the same time explaining that experience away.” ―The New York Times Book Review
“What a pleasure . . . His best nook since The Moviegoer . . . and among the most admirable American novels of the past few years.” ―The New Republic
“He is a beguiling, uniquely gifted novelist who deserves to be read in order and in full.” ―Newsweek
Walker Percy wrote several books of fiction and nonfiction, including the bestsellers The Moviegoer and The Thanatos Syndrome. He was awarded numerous prizes during his lifetime, including the National Book Award, and is considered one of the greatest American writers of our time. He died in 1990.
