Critique: "Presents the peculiar crossroads where love and imagination meet politics and history. . . . A great miscegenating carnival of ambition and desire." -Lee Siegel, The New York Times Book Review "One of America's most significant living novelists . . . inspiration to writers and readers alike." -Claire Messud, Bookforum"Deep imagination, stylistic verve . . . A serious work by a serious artist. It just might strike you as a masterpiece." -Michael Dirda, The Washington Post "Goldman is a maximalist, and his challenging novel of love, migration, class, and corruption shows off a gratifying literary dexterity." -Tom Miller, The Los Angeles Times "The Divine Husband tells a soulful story about love-from the religious to the romantic. . . . A brave and big-hearted book." -John Freeman, Orlando Sentinel "His best. . . . At wonderful moments . . . Goldman's book demonstrates that the dream of the Great American Novel is still alive." -Alan Cheuse, The Chicago Tribune "A level of writing, very rare, that takes your breath away . . . an alchemist's brew of history, fiction and legend." -Lisa Jennifer Selzman, The Houston Chronicle "An intricately wrought tale, a book that takes all kinds of risks with storytelling." -Beth Kephart, The Baltimore Sun "Ebullient, mischievous, and sensual . . . multifaceted, brilliantly satirical tale . . . conjures the very spirit of humankind in all its perfidy and splendor." -Donna Seaman, Booklist "Hilarious, tender, magnificent." -Susan Choi, The Believer "Brave and bighearted . . . this novel reminds us what it feels like to experience love for the first time." -Time Out New York
