New York Times Book Review - John Gardner

A shamelessly original work of art...elegant, beautiful in the way mathematic proofs can be beautiful, and beautiful in the sense that it is the careful statement of an artist we have learned to trust....Like a true work of art, [it] takes great risks...and despite its risk, wins hands down.
