Note de l'éditeur:
"As resonant as a blues song . . . Expect miracles when you read Ann Patchett's fiction."
-- The New York Times Book Review
"A MOVING EMBLEM OF FATHERHOOD'S RARELY EXPLORED PASSION."
-- Los Angeles Times
"Patchett writes with remarkable conviction and attention to telling detail... [She] is excellent at portraying the steady love and interest that holds the family members together, even though that love and interest isn't always successful in preserving the members from danger."
"Absorbing . . . Strikingly original."
- Kirkus Reviews
" Taft is a moving, dangerous book about love and despair and hope. Ann Patchett gives us fantastic yet believable characters that will stay alive long after the last page is turned. She is a wonderful, intelligent writer."
"In her picture of Nickel, Patchett combines a rare sensitivity to issues of race with the unswerving knowledge that deeper than skin color is the essential soul of a good man who wants to repair the damage he has done."
-- The New Orleans Times-Picayune
"Compassionate and deeply moving."
