Publisher Review

A Feather on the Breath of God brilliantly succeeds in describing a life on the fringe, outside the conventional categories of cultural and personal identity ... A remarkable book, full of strange brilliance, trembling with fury and tenderness * Philadelphia Enquirer * An intelligent and poignant examination of social and erotic displacement, and written with such extraordinary and seemingly unstudied conviction that one accepts every word of it as truth * Atlantic Monthly * A remarkable, often disturbing portrait . . . Nunez's language throughout is spare, utterly lacking in sentimentality * Los Angeles Times Book Review * A forceful novel by a writer of uncommon talent * New York Times Book Review * This strange, lucid story of the unwished-for child of unassimilated immigrants takes us well beyond the particulars of 'mixed ethnicity'--beyond even the experience of 'America'--into deep paradoxes of identity and love. Both old-fashioned and subversive, stringent and redemptive, it's a pleasure from the first page to the last * Jonathan Franzen *
