“[A] truly excellent novel...A powerful testament to human nature, alternating creative and destructive forces...Banks is a master of the techniques that make people want to read novels...Those morbidly fascinating little twists of human existence are all here: love and sex, life and death, beauty and horror—the works.” Chicago Sun-Times
“Russell Banks has created in Cloudsplitter an immediate landmark in American fiction.” BookPage
“A compelling novel…Banks achieves effects at once beautiful and brutal. A virtuoso performance.” Publishers Weekly
“Impeccable and serious, knowledgeable and refined.” Booklist
