At least as heartbreaking as it is hilarious.
Krauss writers like an angel.
Moving and virtuosic.
It restores your faith in fiction. It restores all sorts of faith.--Ali Smith
One of the most passionate vindications of the written word in recent fiction. It takes one's breath away.
It's the sort of book that makes life bearable after all.
A significant novel, genuinely one of the year's best. Emotionally wrenching yet intellectually rigorous, idea-driven but with indelible characters and true suspense.
