Anmeldelser

«For me, [Fox] has been an indispensable guide, for the perfection of her language and the sternness of her gaze. Anyone who owns a complete set of the reissued novels possesses a literary and moral treasure.»

Rosellen Brown

«Fox manages to avoid sentimentality…And that is at the heart of Fox's accomplishment in this novel about difficult romance: the eschewal of sentimentality and illusion in favor of real sentiment.»

Washington Post

«Wonderfully rich.»

New York Times Book Review

«Lyrically written and elegantly crafted…Fox brilliantly the fierce attentiveness and openness, bafflement, embarrassment and self-consciousness, as well as the wonder and joy of naive youth.»

San Francisco Chronicle

«A novel cast from the senses. The characters love and die in the watery warm light of New Orleans, in a language of pleasure that takes its ethos from that city's status in the American imagination as the capital of sensuality.»

Washington Times
