"Delbanco creates a lyrical narrative showing a palpably American faith in reinvention as he weaves nostalgia-tinged memories into a grittier reality." (Publishers Weekly)
"Paul Boehmer reads with a soothing, understated style that meshes well with the novel. His depiction of the vagabonds is especially effective in conveying their strong, distinctive personalities." (AudioFile)
