Reviews

Toussaint is a genuinely funny writer . . . small erotic moments are captured perfectly . . . makes me long for more by Toussaint.
[E]legant, erudite, and joyously superficial.
An original and significant writer, whose fiction can be as engaging as it is surprising.
Eleven funny, clever, and light stories. The twelfth one, on how human beings are carried away and destroyed by the passage of time, is magnificent.
