Praise

“Oddly inspiring…Shea has walked the wildwood of our gnarled, ancient speech and returned singing incomprehensible sounds in a language that turns out to be our own.”
-Nicholson Baker, New York Times Book Review

“Delicious…a lively lexicon.”
O, The Oprah Magazine

“Readworthy.”
-William Safire, The New York Times Magazine
