Purple America Reviews

'Moody is a unique stylist whose beautiful prose weaves helixes of language around the simplest of events... Without that style, Moody's story might have become mere sentiment. With it, he conjures an altogether rare element of human feeling.' Stephen Amidon, Sunday Times 'Powerful and engrossing... Purple America further establishes the author as part of a gifted generation of American writers - writers like David Foster Wallace and Jonathan Franzen - concerned with crises of masculinity and modernity.' Paul Quinn, TLS 'This isn't just a hyped novel - it's a great one... searing and brilliant.' Options 'A densely stylish novel... Moody is a master craftsman.' Angus Wolfe Murray, Scotsman 'Magnificent... Rick Moody is that rare writer who can make the language do tricks and and still suffuse his narrative with soul' Esquire 'Piercingly beautiful' Vanity Fair
