PRAISE FOR THE RESTORED EDITION OF ALL THE KING'S MEN
"To read it in this new edition is to be struck again by its raw power, its urgency and relevance."--New Orleans Times-Picayune
"The original editors adjusted the novel to the tastes and styles of the time, but now we can read it as it was written. The result is a more complicated and emotionally charged--and longer--story."--Chicago Tribune
