Reviews

"Browner (The Uncertain Hour) has crafted a stupendous, thought- provoking, devilishly delicious novel that reads like Zen koan meets Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man with some modern "english" that sets the plate spinning. Highly recommended. "--- Library Journal (starred review)
"A light, modern and keen look at the discord between whimsy and prudence."--- Kirkus
"A deeply compassionate novel by a very fine writer." Joseph O'Neill, author of Netherland

Praise for Jesse Browner's The Uncertain Hour

"A sumptuous and affecting novel."
--Michael Lukas, San Francisco Chronicle

"If I say that Jesse Browner's The Uncertain Hour is a truly original work of art, I hope I won't scare anyone off. It's also the most engrossing page-turner I've picked up in a long while."
--Michael Cunningham, author of The Hours

"The Uncertain Hour is that very rare thing--an historical novel of love and ideas not only free of pedantry but also serious and entertaining...As one would expect from an award-winning translator of both Jean Cocteau and Rainer Maria Rilke, it's also elegantly written with a narrative so well-relaized that it's easy to overlook the 46-year-old author's formal audacity."
--Tim Rutten, Los Angeles Times

"The Uncertain Hour is...elegant meditation on such matters as the nature of love, what makes a good life, and whether there can be such a thing as a perfect death. I don't know which to praise more: the author's feat of historical reconstruction, or his boundless powers of invention."
--Sigrid Nunez, author of The Last of Her Kind
