Praise

“No one before Howells had thought to capture the teeming, heterogeneous, multifarious, high-tension city on a single great canvas. Against the variegated backdrop of New York City, Howells dramatizes the intellectual and spiritual conflicts of the democratic future.” Arthur Schlesinger Jr.

“The exactest and truest portrayal of New York and New York life ever written.” Mark Twain

“Simply prodigious.”Henry James
