NYT and the NEW YORKER on THE FOLDED EARTH

"Quietly mesmerizing ... It’s the inherent conflict in human attraction — the inescapable fact that all people remain at heart unknown, even to those closest to them — that forms the spine of the novel." 
THE NEW YORK TIMES


“Roy sorts out the love knots with a touch that is both bold and gentle, but the bigger delight of the book is its intimate, comic glimpse into everyday life in a small hill town… Roy brings the mountains alive not only in their floral, incandescent glory but also in their moodiness and nonchalance.” 
THE NEW YORKER
