Description: Praise for Rites of Passage "Beautifully poised between comedy and dread...splendidly, elegantly phrased." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "It takes a special kind of genius to be able to recreate such convincing early 19th-century prose... A bravura display of writing skill." - The Guardian "A first-rate historical novel that is also a novel of ideas--a taut, beautifully controlled short book with none of the windiness or costumed pageantry so often associated with fiction attempts to reanimate the past... [It is] the best of Golding's novels since Lord of the Flies." - The New York Review of Books "As skillful and resonant as the best of William Golding's orther novels, which are among the best written by any Englishman these past twenty-five years." - The New York Times Book Review "An extraordinary tour de force that has something in common with Melville's Billy Budd , Conrad's Nigger of the Narcissus and even Coleridge's The Ancient Mariner ... Provides readers with still another instance of William Golding's virtuosity and moral stamina." - Philadelphia Inquirer Praise for Close Quarters "A work of ferocious energy, controlled with all the skill and cunning of a master. One eagerly awaits the final volume." - The Spectator "The evocation of atmosphere and the depiction of a little floating world that is mortally stricken are superb... Deeply engrossing and written with the infinite care that one has come to expect of Golding." - Chicago Tribune
