Reviews

"Assured. Accomplished. Memorable. . . . Parks gives us a glimpse of the titanic struggle of meditation, of the mind's fluctuations under restraint, observing itself."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"It's a cracker--clever, funny, and insightful, with complicated, conflicted, and totally convincing Beth at its heart."--Daily Mail

"Parks writes with detachment, wit, and intelligence, and the troubled voice in Beth is entirely convincing."--The Times

"A wry and subtle story about what happens when the Western self tries to lose itself."--Prospect

"An eminently readable and thought-provoking novel that teases you to the last page, and possibly beyond."--Spectator

"Tim Parks is very good at rubbing beliefs up against each other, which leads to subtle, unsettling questions. . . . Full of observations that are quirky, witty, and deep."--Sunday Herald
