Reviews

Dreamlike, almost incantatory prose.
The brutality of her subjects, combined with the fierce intelligence and tenderness at work behind her restrained, unvarnished prose, is overwhelming.--Nicole Krauss
Beautiful and ambitious. Erpenbeck's graceful prose suits the understated tone of this Hans Fallada Prize winner.
Words and stories and memory are the vehicle by which the reader moves, intoxicatingly and fearlessly, through a dizzying but magnificent series of terrains.--Michele Filgate
One of the finest, most exciting authors alive.--Michael Faber
