«A terrific novel of echoing sadness»

«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»

, 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»

«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»
