"Everything from Central American conflict to eugenics, from pre-Socratic cosmology to movie musicals is transfigured and woven in this dense, lush, politically wicked aria.... Brilliantly imagined, sensuously observed, Bradford Morrow's Come Sunday is a stunning accomplishment and a rare treat."-David Foster Wallace "Come Sunday resists classification. There are affinities with Kafka and with Conrad's Heart of Darkness. This is far from the usual semi-autobiographical first novel, groping for meaning and identity, though there are profound insights into identity and the ultimate impasse of control and authority. Morrow draws on an astonishingly wide knowledge and experience of people, places, and history, and puts a rich command of language at the service of his lapidary and mysterious plot. A very engrossing story."-William S. Burroughs . First Edition. Near Mint.
