Reviews

"[Balances] a moving story of familial and romantic love on a deliberately unsteady fictional edifice . . . [an] exuberant chimera of a novel."-The New Yorker

"Splendidly devious."-The New York Times Book Review

"Wily and witty . . . an engrossing family saga [with] sparkling and imaginative prose. Shakespeare would applaud a man who does him so proud."-The Boston Globe

"Arthur Phillips has found the perfect vehicle for his cerebral talents: his ingenuity; his bright, elastic prose; and, most notably, his penchant for pastiche-for pouring his copious literary gifts into old vessels and reinventing familiar genres."-The New York Times

"Devious and exhilarating . . . an irresistible family drama bundled into an exploration of fraud and authenticity."-The Wall Street Journal

"A circus of a novel, full of wit, pathos and irrepressible intelligence."-Minneapolis Star Tribune

"The story of a family that is Shakespearean in several senses . . . [The Tragedy of Arthur] contains literary echoes of Nabokov, Stoppard and even . . . Thomas Pynchon."-San Francisco Chronicle
