"An authentic cry of American innocence . . . The author seizes the reader with a southern gift for story-telling and never lets go."
"A flooded-with-life novel with a story to tell and characters to be cherished . . . replete with love, adventure, loyalty, pride, laughter, and violence . . . with a tremendously satisfying climax."
"A complicated but compelling story . . . well-crafted work . . . It is a southern story in setting and in the voices, but it is a universal and timeless story as well."
—Northeast Georgia Living
"Warm . . . Fine . . . Brilliant . . . A triumph! The characters are larger than life. . . . The plot roars into high gear immediately and races through twists and turns that leave the reader gasping. . . . An enormously comforting novel."
—New York Times Book Review
"A Cry of Angels has sparkle, gusto, pathos, comedy, and drama . . . written with an expertise that must be ranked among the finest."
"A Cry of Angels is thoroughly delightful and the best pure fun a novel has given me for some time . . . the little town and its people are completely alive."
"A humdinger . . . even better than To Kill a Mockingbird . . . funny, touching, and gripping."
—Chicago Daily News
Crooms's vision of a new Ape Yard, rebuilt by its own residents, unites the four-and puts them on a collision course with Doc Bobo, a smalltown Machiavelli who rules the community like a feudal lord. Jeff Fields's exuberantly defined characters and his firmly rooted sense of place have earned A Cry of Angels an intensely loyal following. Its republication, more than three decades since it first appeared, is cause for celebration.
