"[James Agee's words] are so indelibly etched someplace inside of me that I couldn't reach to rub them out even if I wanted to. And I never want to."
-Steve Earle, from the Introduction
"The work of a writer whose power with English words can make you gasp."
-Alfred Kazin, The New York Times Book Review
" It is, in the full sense, poetry. . . . The language of the book, at once luminous and discreet . . . remains in the mind."
-The New Republic
" Wonderfully alive."
-The New Yorker
