"Because his prose is as plain and natural as daylight, his tremendous achievement seems effortless. Though he shares much of the richness of his countrymen Yeats and Joyce, he avoids their sourness of spirit, and though his vision of the human tragedy can be as dark as that of the Greeks, it is also deeply, though never entirely, comic" (New York Times).
