Reviews

"A joy to read. It is beautifully articulated and superbly written. . . . A glorious and satisfying 'thriller.' " -The New York Times

"In a time of intellectual inflation, . . . Gide's survival can help us to distinguish between the genuine and the counterfeit. . . . There is nothing like the real thing." -The New Republic

"Full of gusto. . . . The imagination works freely and the plot marches boldly ahead, galloping through the most preposterous situations without breaking its neck." -New York Herald Tribune
