  1. Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson Will Never Grow Up

    How did Peter Pan learn to fly, anyway? And what's this about him never growing old? In their swashbuckling prequel to J. M.

The New Yorker raved, "Patchett's tragicomic novel—a fantasia of guns and Puccini and Red Cross negotiations—invokes the glorious, unreliable promises of art, politics and love. Against this grand backdrop, the smallest gestures bloom with meaning." As Laura Miller concluded in a review for Salon.com, "Patchett makes it work, completely."
