"A great hurtle of a book, telling several powerful stories at once...An astonishing performance. . . a prodigious, illuminating and exhilarating run." --The New York Times

"Ingenious...A heady, panoramic novel, scored, like so much of Powers's work, for full orchestra. . .One of our most lavishly gifted writers." --The New Yorker

"Richard Powers is a wonder. . .[The Time of Our Singing] is beautifully, meticulously crafted." --The New York Observer

"I can think of no American novelist of his generation who makes a stronger [case]--that the writing of novels is a heroic enterprise, and perhaps even a matter of life and death." --A. O. Scott, The New York Review of Books

"With his characteristic mastery of structure and language, Powers has orchestrated a story that. . .plays with bravura to the end." --People

"This is a novel God might relish and call enriching. Powers' heart-cry should win big prizes." --The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Powers is a genuine artist, a thinker of rare synthetic gifts, maybe the only writer working...who can render the intricate dazzle of it all and at the same time plumb its philosophical implications." --Sven Birkerts, Esquire

"One of the best novels ever written about race in of the best written about the joys of music. . .A major novel, harrowing and haunting in blending such intense beauty and such great sorrow into one great, unforgettable American symphony." --Newsday

"A bold and vibrant set of variations on the themes of music, race and time. . . It is hard to think of another novel since Thomas Mann's Doctor Faustus that uses music so effectively and with such authority." --Chicago Tribune

"The Time of Our Singing is an astonishment but not a surprise...Richard Powers has been astounding us almost every other year since 1985...We can no longer be surprised about whatever he dares to think in ink about." --Harper's Magazine

Reseña del editor:

A richly textured generational tale of love, allegiance, loyalty, race, and music follows the marriage of David Strom, a German Jewish emigre scientist, and Delia Daley, an African-American singer, as they, along with their extraordinarily gifted children, struggle to overcome the racial injustices of the 1960s. Reader's Guide available. Reprint.
