Reviews

I can think of no other writer as concerned with formal and thematic questions of pace (not of time, but of the various speeds at which we feel time pacing): not only are the individual books quick-moving, but he's published over a hundred of them, with no signs of slowing down.--Steven Zultanski
Aira's cubist eye sees from every angle.--Patti Smith
A marvelous little collection about compulsion, obsession, and the extraordinary joy that a simple pleasure can bring.
As Aira illuminates the dead ends in his drive to collect the magazine, he offers rich insight into the appreciation of art and the desire to possess. This entertaining jaunt through the writer's creative development satisfies with brevity and grace.--Fiction Book Review: Artforum
