Reviews

'Blithely gifted . . . an ambitious, finely chiselled work.' John Updike ' Hugely talented . . . Colson Whitehead has produced an immensely rich, many stranded novel. The writing is inspired on every page. Just Wonderful! One of my books of the year.' Brian Case, Time Out 'Such is the buoyancy of his talent, and the protean assuredness of his prose, that the result is controlled, poignant, wittily observed and often gleefully comic.' Maya Jaggi, Guardian 'Colson Whitehead's dazzling second novel . . . It may be nothing new to suggest that history is fiction; but the pleasure of reading this ingenious patchwork lies in how it reminds us of the vitality of those fictions.' Graham Caveney, Independent on Sunday 'John Henry Days is funny and wise and sumptuously written.' Jonathan Franzen, New York Times 'Witty, acerbic and immensely compelling ...fresh and evocative ...Whitehead is a first-rate writer who has produced a novel that is compelling'. Financial Times
