    Review quote
    "The overall impression is that of a delicate, triumphant glance, an acknowledgement of Woolf that takes her into Cunningham's own territory, a place of late-century danger but also of treasurable hours."--Michael Wood, "The New York Times Book Review" "An exquisitely written, kaleidoscopic work that anchors a floating postmodern world on pre-modern caissons of love, grief and transcendent longing."--Richard Eder, " Los Angeles Times Book Review" "[Cunningham] has deftly created something original, a trio of richly interwoven tales that alternate with one another chapter by chapter, each of them entering the thoughts of a character as she moves through the small details of a day . . . Cunningham's emulation of such a revered writer as Woolf is courageous, and this is his most mature and masterful work."--Jameson Currier, "The Washington Post Book World" "The triumph of "The Hours" is that it somehow manages to be both artful and sincere, striking nary a false note . . . And the triumph of the book is no less the triumph of its author. Just when it seemed that it was no longer permissible to pay respect to the literature of the past, Cunningham has done so with an undeniable skill and depth of feeling."--Justin Cronin, "Philadelphia Inquirer" "Rich and beautifully nuanced scenes follow one upon the other . . . [a] gargantuan accomplishment."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred, boxed review)
