"There is something wise and still and beautiful about Jonathan Dee's portrayal of a contemporary enigma--an American businessman, successful, asessing his comfortable life when forced into an abrasive but compelling alliance with the Third World... Brings to mind Yasunari Kawabata and William Maxwell." - Mona Simpson "Jonathan Dee's novels excite me--not with quick action, but with their mastery and precision... Dee's novels are books you can sink into." - Rick Bass
