Reviews

" 'So sharp, witty and profound ... Percy should have an acknowledged place between John Updike and Richard Ford as a great chronicler of twentieth century small town American malaise.' The Guardian * 'Some novels simply do not go away. They lodge in your consciousness, expanding rather than disappearing after the last page is turned ... Their mysteries deepen with each reading. Your curiosity about them is never quenched. 'The Moviegoer' has proved to be just such a book for me, as it has for countless others.' New Statesman * 'A modern classic ... Wry and lyrical, it will be a discovery for those who have not yet read it and a double pleasure for those who will read it again.' The Times * 'Funny and sad ... a gifted Southern master with a flair bordering on genius.' Irish Times * 'His story is often so shrewdly witty, even outright funny, that one forgets it is a novel about despair.' New York Herald Tribune"
