Oh, what could be

John Leonard on Rick Moody's latest novel The Diviners in the New York Review of Books.

Mr. Moody is a writer for whom I have held great hopes, and every once in a while, in a particular short story or turn of phrase, he seems to merit some of that hope. Still, I have had to plow through a lot of manure to find the saplings.

For all that, I still read him. I still have hope.
