Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
"William Gay's second novel announces its ambition right away with this nod toward a poem by Wallace Stevens, and a homage to William Faulkner plays out through the rest of the book. Conjuring these two literary ancestors seems appropriate: Gay has both an exquisitely tuned ear and a finely balanced feeling for the mythic resonances to be found in Southern life. Yet PROVINCES OF NIGHT proceeds on its own deliberate, dignified path...."
Maria Russo, Salon, 11/22/2000Review:
"Mr. Gay's writing is earth-toned, pungent, deeply rooted in the remote corner of Tennessee where he sets his story....PROVINCES OF NIGHT also shows both a dark Southern naturalism worthy of Tennessee Williams and an impulse toward comic relief reminiscent of a sort of backwoods S. J. Perelman....[It] shows an author with a powerful vision and plenteous veins of material, but one who isn't always sure to what purposes these riches should be put."
