Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"Although [the character, Maria] seems to be in hell, and although every event is charged with misery, 'Play It As It Lays' will extract no tears and cannot be honestly called depressing. The neat, cinematic construction, the economy and precision of the narrative, and the harsh wit of the mean, soulless dialogue stimulate a certain exhilaration, as when we appreciate a harmonious and well-proportioned painting of some cruelly martyred saint in whom we do not believe."

D.A.N. Jones, New York Review of Books, 10/22/1970

Review:

"What makes the world of this novel...so heartbreaking and inescapable is Miss Didion's selection of details. There is nothing superfluous, not a word, not an incident....Such an economy testifies to a vision as bleak and as precise as Eliot's in 'The Wasteland'."

John Leonard, New York Times, 07/21/1970
