Reviews

Conroy's debut novel, of a young and neglected musical prodigy who is taken in by a music-store owner, was named one of PW's best books of 1993. (Nov.)

"Beautifully written, and hypnotically readable...the best story I know of in a long, long time."
--Vanity Fair "Full of enchantment...a precise conjuring of an exceptional child's perceptions and feelings."
--
Entertainment Weekly "A big, old-fashioned book as satisfying as a fine evening at the symphony."
--Dallas Morning News "A literary event...a grand saga...Body & Soul was written under the spell of Dickens, not to mention Stendhal, Tolstoy and the other 19th century titans...Conroy bedazzles readers!

Chicago Tribune
