About the Author:

John Gardner (1933-1982) was one of the most provocative and successful American novelists of his generation, garnering critical praise and a popular following for his fiction, including October Light, Nickel Mountain, Grendel, and The Wreckage of Agathon. His volumes of criticism, the groundbreaking Moral Fiction and his controversial The Art of Fiction, have become standard texts in university writing classes around the country. Charles Johnson is the author of Middle Passage, winner of the National Book Award for fiction. He is the Pollock Professor in Humanities at the University of Washington, and a MacArthur Fellow. In 2003 he published Turning the Wheel, a collection of essays about his experiences as an African-American Buddhist.

Review:

"An enormous circus trunk out of which the author keeps taking new literary treasures... A compassionate portrait of America in the uneasy '60s? Yes... Gardner explores everything with love and forbearance." --Time

"The Sunlight Dialogues is large and beautifully written... absorbing moment by moment and darkly troubling after it's over." --The New York Times Book Review
