Description

Advance Praise for Cesare

"[An] edgy, hallucinatory, full-throttle fable." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Select Praise for Jerome Charyn

"Charyn, like Nabokov, is that most fiendish sort of writer--so seductive as to beg imitation, so singular as to make imitation impossible." --Tom Bissell

"Charyn is one of the most important writers in American literature." --Michael Chabon

"Charyn is a one off: no other living American writer crafts novels with his vibrancy of historical imagination." --William Giraldi

"[Charyn's] sentences are pure vernacular music, his voice unmistakable." --Jonathan Lethem

"One of our most rewarding novelists." --Larry McMurtry

"Among Charyn's writerly gifts is a dazzling energy―a highly inflected rapid-fire prose that pulls us along like a pony cart over rough terrain." --Joyce Carol Oates, New York Review of Books

"Who wouldn't want to grow old like Jerome Charyn? Now in his 80s, the prolific writer seems ever more daring." --Ron Charles, Washington Post

"Charyn skillfully breathes life into historical icons." --New Yorker

"One of our most intriguing fiction writers." --O, The Oprah Magazine

"Absolutely unique among American writers." --Los Angeles Times

"A contemporary American Balzac." --Newsday

"Charyn has a gift for the unexpected, both linguistically and narratively. . . . The result is at once surprising and very entertaining." --BookPage

"For half a century, [Charyn] has been an unpredictable, unclassifiable, and above all exactingly smart author." --Open Letters Review

"Charyn makes artful use of historical fact and fiction's panache." --Kirkus Reviews

"Wherever he takes us, Charyn's mind is always agile, and his prose is stunningly electric." --Jewish Book Council
