"Dawn Powell once wrote that although her writing might occasionally concern itself with serious matters, there was never any need to get heavy-handed about it. "The Locusts Have no King," first published in 1948, is a stellar example of this quasi-manifesto. Like all Powell's novels, it glides, fast but deep, from the first sentence to the last, written with impeccable finesse and a flawless ear, never grinding its wheels or getting lost in egotistical undergrowth. For all its sweetness and light, "Locusts" is an intelligent, hard-headed, clear-eyed, examination of art, love, ruthlessness, infidelity, commerce, ambition, betrayal, and destruction. It is, in short, a quintessential New York novel. . . . The whole novel still rings as true now as it must have more than half a century ago." -- Kate Christensen, author of "The Epicure's Lament" and other novels in "Barnes & Noble Review," <br>""The Locusts Have No King" is one of Powell's finest novels and better than anything currently on the bestseller lists."<br>--Library Journal (Classic Returns column, 1995)
