"It's genius . . . Ellis Island ascends to the peak of literary achievement." -- The Boston Globe

"Constant brilliance . . . Rarely less than heartbreaking . . . every single story sings with purity, vibrates with light." -- Cleveland Plain Dealer
"Stories beyond compare . . . [Helprin's] imagination should be protected by some intellectual equivalent of the National Park Service." -- "Philadelphia Inquirer"
