Reviews

"Oddly inspiring...Shea has walked the wildwood of our gnarled, ancient speech and returned singing incomprehensible sounds in a language that turns out to be our own." -Nicholson Baker, New York Times Book Review "Delicious...a lively lexicon." -O, The Oprah Magazine "Readworthy." -William Safire, The New York Times Magazine
