Review "Carpentier's writing has the power and range of a cathedral organ on the eve of the Resurrection."--The New Yorker

"Carpentier's energy is gigantic and pell-mell, sweeping colossi on top of each other with ruthless, contemptuous daring."--The Yale Review

"Carpentier creates a brilliant, improbable world which has the stylized reality of the great myths."--The Atlantic Monthly

"The Kingdom of This World packs literary dynamite. There can be no disputing the fact, Carpentier is equipped with an elegant perception and a distinctive style which make him a writer to be classed with Thomas Mann and W.H. Hudson."--San Francisco Chronicle
