Praise for Colson Whitehead's The Intuitionist:
"Magical... [The Intuitionist] ranks alongside Catch-22, V, The Bluest Eye, and other groundbreaking first novels... Whitehead shares Heller's sense of the absurd, Pynchon's operatic expansiveness, and Morrison's deconstruction of race and racism." —San Francisco Chronicle
"An homage to the power of a writer's imagination."
"Whitehead's writing is dazzling."
"The freshest racial allegory since Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man and Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye."
—Walter Kirn, Time
"Brilliant... Whitehead carves out an exclusive space for himself in America's literary canon."
—Washington Post Book World
"Ingenious and starkly original."
—New York Times Book Review
