Praise

“This compassionate and original book is about love and loneliness and courage in the new wilderness of out atomized society. It is also funny, awful and gruesomely Floridian without sacrificing its seriousness. Joy Williams is as fine a writer as you heard she was.”—Thomas McGuane
 
“An ominous and enthralling novel …. truly significant fiction, of which there is not very much around. Breaking and Entering reminds me again that life is short; it is also very wide.”—Jim Harrison
 
“To put it simply, Joy Williams is the most gifted writer of her generation. For her, the human personality is of most interest and most truth when it is under the most extreme pressure…. This notion of truth emerges in Joy Williams’s work in a complete Americanness of setting, language, and psychology that I find to be of great beauty and meaning.”—Harold Brodkey
