What People Are Saying

John Hollander
"Each of John Fuller's three new books would be a remarkable achievement in which knowledge, wit, and complex feeling engage nature and art in an unflagging array of invention. But these three together are astonishing, and Fuller's accomplishment seems unrivalled."
