Abstract: The purpose of this study is to determine the critical reception, from I961 through 1966, of Reynolds Price's first three books: A Long and Happy Life, The Names and Faces of Heroes, and A Generous Man. Chronological checklists of reviews indicate each critic’s reaction to each book, whether favorable, mixed, or unfavorable. Thirteen tables indicate different studies such as which novel and which short stories the critics consider superior. Where pertinent, Price's own interpretation of his work is given. Unfortunately, no books evaluating Price's work have been published. Therefore, the sources of information for this study are primarily book reviews in magazines and newspapers. In addition, a few articles and interviews are cited.
