The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Perfectly executed and chilling . . . A sad and oddly moving tale of lost opportunities and misplaced hopes."
Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
"A battle for the soul, waged between the forces of good and evil . . . Mr. Trevor shows just how wise and wry and funny and morally astute an observer of the human comedy he is."
Patrick McGrath, front page, The New York Times Book Review
"A thriller lifted to the level of high art . . ."
"In thirteen novels and eight short-story collections [William Trevor] has shown himself a close observer, a fine stylist, a master psychologist. In Felicia's Journey . . . he brings all these qualities into play, and adds to them a teasing manipulation of the reader's sensibilities, so that the book has the elegant tensions of a high-class thriller."
The New York Review of Books
"One of the very best writers of our era."
