Reviews

"Antoine Volodine's Solo Viola is a deft evisceration of fascism, seen through another lens and dislocated to a fantastical world. Volodine, here and elsewhere in his hugely important work, shows how the political and the fantastical can be intertwined in a way that allows a powerful reevaluation to occur--a reevaluation that feels all too starkly relevant to twenty-first-century America."--Brian Evenson, author of Song for the Unraveling of the World


"Haunting and elegiac, Solo Viola has its share of whimsy, but it's all in service of an earnest meditation on the dangers of fascism that lingers long after the story is concluded."--Foreword, starred review
