Review:
"DREAM CATCHER is indeed in almost all respects an unattractive and unwelcome book. Had its author been anyone except the only daughter of this country's most famously reclusive novelist...it certainly would not have been published. It is too long by at least 200 pages, it is almost indescribably self-indulgent, and it invades the author's father's cherished privacy to the point of disloyalty and exploitation....DREAM CATCHER must be seen not as an attempt at self-exploration and self-understanding but as an act of revenge and betrayal: a blow beneath the belt."

Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post, 09/01/2000

Review:
"DREAM CATCHER is really two books in one: a very short, at times acute critical biography of Peggy's father and an overlong, provisionally uplifting account of her own life....She claims she wrote it to answer her son's eventual questions about where his family came from, but that doesn't explain why she felt compelled to publish it while her father is still alive. It wouldn't have compromised the book's meager but undeniable worth--as a piece of mildly informative insider literary criticism, or as a better-written-than- most recovery memoir--to admit that her son's college fund may benefit along with his emotional well-being."

David Kipen, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review, 09/07/2000
