BN reviews Orfeo

“Ofeo,” a review by Tom LeClair, Barnes and Noble Review, January 21, 2014.

Since reviewing Richard Powers’s second novel, Prisoner’s Dilemma, in 1988, I’ve had to keep track of his age so that, when asked who to read, I can say, “Powers. He’s the most important living American novelist under” whatever age he happens to be at the time. …  I can almost see a slimmed-down Frank Langella as Peter Els in the westering road-trip movie.
