Synopses & Reviews
"[Quinn] entrap[s] us in the dialogue itself, in the sweet and terrible lucidity of Ishmael's analysis of the human condition...it was surely for this deep, clear persuasiveness of argument that Ishmael was given its huge prize." The Washington Post
"It is as suspenseful, inventive, and socially urgent as any fiction or nonfiction book you are likely to read this or any other year" The Austin Chronicle
"Deserves high marks as a serious and all too rare effort that is unflinchingly engaged with fundamental life-and-death concerns." The Atlanta Journal Constitution
