Review quote

"A leap of the imagination. . . stunningly delivered."-- "Los Angeles Times Book Review""A mythical story. . . coming-of-nuclear-age tale, the making of a new man from the ashes of the old world. . . a key to the conundrum at the center of the world."-- "Philadelphia Inquirer""A marvelous book, beautifully written and constantly entertaining. . . . With it Johnson firmly establishes his place as one of the very best contemporary writers. He is a wonderful storyteller, and if at times Fiskadoro seems a mixture of Sameul Beckett, Phillip K. Dick and Road Warrior, that is only to his credit."-- "Washington Post""Haunting. . .an eerie and powerful visionary novel."-- "Boston Globe""Wildly ambitious. . .the sort of book that a young Herman Melville might have written had he lived today and studied such disparate works as the Bible, 'The Wasteland, ' Farenheit 451 and Dog Soldiers, screened Star Wars and Apocalypse Now several times, dropped a lot of acid and listened to hours of Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones. . . . Its strange, hallucinatory vision of America and modern history is never less than compelling."-- "New York Times"
