Editorial Reviews

Review

“Sometimes, almost indifferently, one of [Percival Everett’s] novels turns out to be truly exceptional and memorable, and confuses me in the best possible way. . . . Everett’s most recent novel, Telephone, is one of these standouts. . . . Everett pulls off a gently tremendous technical feat with the accumulated little slips out of the present situation. . . . For this reader, the reveries and exits accumulated such that the final and longest slide into the wilderness made the turn to the closing pages sad, affecting and marvelous.”―Rivka Galchen, The New York Times Book Review

“God bless Percival Everett, whose dozens of idiosyncratic books demonstrate a majestic indifference to literary trends, the market or his critics.”
The Wall Street Journal

“Like watching a skilled juggler execute a six-ball fountain, the experience of reading
Telephone is astonishing.”Los Angeles Times

“A spellbinding, heartbreaking tale.”
Publishers Weekly
