"Review A Day" by , "John Henry Days is daring, nervy, knowing, and smart. Like [DeLillo's] Underworld, it is a bristle of bricolage; but unlike that book, it gives off, despite its bulk, a curious fear of longevity, of entanglement. Its mode is generally filmic ? the rapidity of cutting seems more important than the depth of scenes, as if Whitehead were continually saying to himself, "Keep it moving, keep it moving!" (read the entire New Republic review)
"Review" by , "John Henry Days is funny and wise and sumptuously written....Again and again, you hit passages of wry and largehearted descriptive prose that are the clearest measure of Whitehead's achievement and promise as a writer."
