Stitch: A Novel

'“Stitch and Herzog are my two favorite postwar novels.” —John Berryman “In a quick, clipped, but emotive prose—like a treaty between Hemingway and Fitzgerald—Stern has written an elegy for a past that still hangs in men’s senses like the smell of the Venetian canals.” —Newsweek  “I think Stitch is brilliant. . . . No one that I know has handled Americans abroad with a directness and an urgency that leaves the picture cleansed of any travel-book fuzz [the way Stern does].” —John Cheever “The fluency of the book is superb—a shorthand full of grace, immediately communicating a great many feelings and meanings. What James more elaborately was doing when people still had patience with the elaborate . . . It’s a very fine thing.” —Saul Bellow'
