Reviews

"Haunting, sad, yet lovely....An important, disturbing and powerful novel that deserves attention."
"Poetry of the mind rather than the senses--sparse and austere, with every detail chosen for its resonances.... A small book but a major achievement."
"Frisch is a great, and even an inspiring, writer, because he gives us the unique sense that the act of analysis is a passionate act, impelled by our fear of the world's dissolution and our knowledge of our own fragility."
