Praise

“Irresistible…intimate and theatrical…supple and surprising…. We’re in the hands of a master storyteller.” —Carol Shields, author of The Stone Diaries

“Carey has vaulted to the top ranks of writers in the English-speaking world…. Tristan has an appeal that transcends geography.” —Newsday

“Carey’s always magical, absolutely lovable narrative voice makes The Unusual Life of Tristan Smith an important contribution to contemporary fiction…. No matter what he decides to write or how he decides to write it, it’s a priviledge to read him.” —Carolyn See, Washington Post Book World

“Savage and hilarious…dazzling.” —The New York Review of Books
