Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

" I think Stitch is brilliant.... No one that I know has handled Americans abroad with a directness and an urgency that leaves the picture cleansed of any travel-book fuzz."
-John Cheever

"The fluency of the book is superb-a shorthand full of grace, immediately communicating a great many feelings and meanings. What James more elaborately was doing when people still had patience with the elaborate.... It's a very fine thing." -Saul Bellow

"Stern's best so far; and his best is so beautifully damn good.... I cared for its sorrows, and for its austere and skeptical morale." -Howard Nemerov
