Ahab's Wife Reviews
"Excepting a few inconsequential false steps, a genuine epic of America: an inspired homage to one of our greatest writers that brilliantly reinterprets, and in many ways rivals, his masterpiece." - Kirkus Reviews.
"A complex and sophisticated book, brilliantly written, beautifully illustrated." - Booklist.
"This tour de force does not attain its model's literary genius, but nevertheless it is a whale of a read. Recommended for all fiction collections." - Library Journal.
"In the last third of the book, readers may become weary of Una's spiritual reflections and the minutiae of her daily routine. But these are small faults in a splendid novel that amply fulfills its ambitious purpose offering a sweeping, yet intimate picture of a remarkable woman who both typifies and transcends her times. Illustrations by Christopher Wormell." - Publishers Weekly.
