"I think Don DeLillo's avant garde. No one's caught up with what he's doing yet." -- Joy Williams
"Joy Williams has produced a hard, sharp, comic novel about the off-kilter genius of adolescence-a work of maverick insight and rash and beautiful bursts of language." -- Don DeLillo on The Quick and the Dead.
"[The Visiting Privilege] cements Williams’s position not merely as one of the great writers of her generation, but as our pre-eminent bard of humanity’s insignificance." -- Dan Kois, New York Times Magazine
