"Review" by , "The book has moments of magnificence, and throughout, one feels the presence of Ellison's moral intelligence, his refined lucidity, his ambition and clean sensibility. But as a "novel" it barely exists: it is technically unconvincing, its premises are unearned, its scenes bleed into one another. It palpably lacks its own hinterland – presumably the hundreds of pages that were to prepare and follow this strand in Ellison's epic plan. Yet, painful to say, even as a passage of writing it is frequently flawed: it is too often homiletic, sentimental, and rhetorical." (read the entire New Republic review here)
