"What was it you just said to me?" Jackie asked, prompting him like a teacher. "It's never been done?" He was watching his friend, half smiling. Finally he said it for him: No one had ever done it. No one could do it. No one expected it. Therefore it could be done. The artistry of novelist Christopher Davis is one of the secrets of contemporary American fiction.-Don Gold, Chicago Sun-Times. [Christopher] Davis is a master of the quietly engineered sentence. His prose is a form of plainsong that disguises the sophistication of his method but never the breadth of his understanding and compassion.-The American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. Davis's brilliance is to keep the writing precise, sharp, and to terrify with irony and exactness.- St. Louis Globe.
