Praise

"An extraordinary epic…. nothing less than the story of the twentieth century itself." — The Times

"Frank Bascombe has earned a place beside Willy Loman and Harry Angstrom in our literary landscape…with a wry wit and a fin de siècle wisdom that is very much his own." — The New York Times Book Review

"Each flash of magical dialogue, every rumination a wild surprise…. Independence Day is a confirmation of a talent as strong and varied as American fiction has to offer." — The New York Review of Books

"A Babe Ruth of novelists…. One of the finest curators of the great American living museum." — Washington Post Book World

"One of his generation’s most eloquent voices." — Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
