Washington Post on Malouf's Ransom

In the 1/28 issue of the Washington Post, Michael Dirda praises David Malouf, author of Ransom (now on sale from Pantheon Books) for his ability to pack “an enormous amount into his 200 or so pages.” Dirda goes on to say: “While Malouf can write brilliantly in the ‘low’ register of a Somax or describe nature with a Wordsworthian attentiveness, he is equally convincing in suggesting the grave diction of epic.”
