Praise

Praise for The Wonderland Quartet

“Protean and prodigious are surely the words that describe Ms. Oates. From the very beginning, as these impressive and diverse novels make clear, her talents and interests and strengths have never found comfort in fashionable restraint. She’s sought, instead, to do it all—to face and brilliantly, inventively transact and give shape to as much of experience as possible, as if by no other means is a useful and persuasive gesture of moral imagination even conceivable. For us readers these are valuable books.”—Richard Ford

“These four novels reveal Oates’ powers of observation and invention, her meticulous social documentation joined to her genius for forging unforgettable myths. She is one of the handful of great American novelists of the last hundred years.”—Edmund White

“This rich, kaleidoscopic suite of novels displays the young Joyce Carol Oates exercising her formidable artistic powers to portray a turbulent twentieth-century America. They offer the reader a singular opportunity to experience some of Oates’s best writing and to witness her development, novel by novel, into one of our finest contemporary writers.”—Greg Johnson, author of Invisible Writer: A Biography of Joyce Carol Oates
