A page-turner marked by brilliant psychological suspense.
–The Philadelphia Inquirer
Felicia's Journey is packed with extraordinary passages.
A battle for the soul, waged between the forces of good and evil . . . Mr. Trevor shows just how wise and wry and funny and morally astute an observer of the human comedy he is.
–Patrick McGrath, The New York Times Book Review
A thriller lifted to the level of high art . . .
In thirteen novels and eight short-story collections [William Trevor] has shown himself a close observer, a fine stylist, a master psychologist. In Felicia's Journey . . . he brings all these qualities into play, and adds to them a teasing manipulation of the reader's sensibilities, so that the book has the elegant tensions of a high-class thriller.
–The New York Review of Books
One of the very best writers of our era.
