“I’ve often felt that people in modern fiction don’t seem to want enough things, to lust after experience as they appear to do in my experience—but Mr. Gardner is surely an antidote for that trend. His people are a hotbed . . . of all kinds of desires: political, aesthetic, sexual, and quite a few that baffle description" (Anatole Broyard, The New York Times).
