Reviews

"Entrancing . . . I can't think of a recent novel that better describes the scarily charged beginning of a love affair." --The New York Times Book Review

"A beautifully composed rave-generation rhapsody . . . In prose dripping with eroticism and aching with melancholy, Dyer masterfully dissects the vicissitudes of twenty-something love." --The Sunday Times (London)

"Witty and sexy and experimental." --Lucinda Ballantyne, The Boston Globe

"Absorbing and darkly romantic . . . However it's labeled--as a novel thick with essay point, and old-fashioned story in postmodern dress, or a fiction that contains its own dissertation--Paris Trance is a haunting work." --Tom Nolan, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

"Tender is the Night for the Ecstasy Age." --Tim Pears, author of In the Place of Fallen Leaves

"A beautiful, remarkable book about sad, unremarkable lives." --Ian Sansom, The Guardian (UK)
