Reviews

"Astonishing . . . breathtaking . . . You are seduced completely." --Washington Post Book World

"Captivating, minutely imagined . . . a novel that refuses to stay shut." --Newsweek

"A story with the social vibrancy and narrative sweep of a much-loved 19th century bildungsroman. . . . This is a high-wire act. . . . Rarely has a world so closed and foreign been evoked with such natural assurance." --The New Yorker
