From the Publisher:

"What a pleasure it is to read a real novel.... THE THANATOS SYNDROME has the ambition and purposefulness to take on the world, to wrestle with its shortcomings, and to celebrate its glories." -Washington Post Book World

"He is a dazzlingly gifted novelist.... Percy stages a lively medical mystery...that no serious reader will want to miss." -USA Today

"There is ample evidence of Percy's brilliance in THE THANATOS SYNDROME - the droll Dixie anthropology, the pitch-perfect dialogue, the sheer intelligence everywhere on the page.... It is splendidly, uproariously catholic, as well." --Douglas Bauer, Atlantic Monthly

"Shimmers with intelligence and verve...THE THANATOS SYNDROME is highbrow hilarity all the more discerning for distinguishing its tears behind lots of laughs." --Newsday

From the Back Cover:

"What a pleasure it is to read a real novel ... The Thanatos Syndrome has the ambition and purposefulness to take on the world, to wrestle with its shortcomings, and to celebrate its glories."

-- The Washington Post Book World

"Spins along at a brisk thriller pace, laced with escapes and chase scenes and risky, ingenious detective work."

-- The New York Times Book Review

"He is a dazzlingly gifted novelist...Percy stages a lively medical mystery...that no serious reader will want to miss."

-- USA Today

"The Thanatos Syndrome resembles a crime novel but is more precisely a sparkling comedy and an intriguing philosophical novel...This is vintage Walker Percy, a writer for all seasons."

-- Newsday
