Reviews

"Provocative...fascinating...dazzling."--Ron Charles, The Washington Post "An excellent introduction to Powers's work, a lighter, leaner treatment of his favorite themes and techniques...An engaging story-teller...even as he questions the conventions of narrative and character, Generosity gains in momentum and suspense."--Jay McInerney, The New York Times Book Review "Powers is a brilliantly imaginative writer, working here with a lightness of touch, a crisp sense of peace, and a distinct warmth...Powers shows both his reach as a student of humanity and his mastery as a storyteller."--O, The Oprah Magazine "When written by Dostoevsky, Dickens, or Richard Powers at his best, one may feel that [the novel] can contain every facet of the world."--Michael Dirda, The New York Review of Books "Powers fuses riveting narrative and spot-on dialogue with thought-provoking social analysis."--Dan Cryer, Newsday "One of our most exciting contemporary novelists."--Amanda Gefter, Philadelphia Inquirer Powers is better than the best of almost anybody else.--John Leonard, Harper's Magazine Powers may well be one of the smartest novelists now writing.--Los Angeles Times One of our greatest novelists.--Booklist [Powers's] characters are unforgettable, flesh-and-blood individuals as finely drawn as those of any contemporary fiction writer.--Steve Weinberg, The Seattle Times To read his work is to be wowed by his verbal muscularity...admirable...wonderfully original.--Meg Wolitzer, The New York Times Book Review
