Charts the emotional distance between Bucharest under Ceausescu's despotic rule and present-day hipster Brooklyn, resulting in a striking, auspicious debut.

With romance and a stroke of sci-fi, Rosengaard's novel is a swift and memorable meditation on how storytellers struggle to separate the tangible from the contrived.

This strange story about strange stories, told with intelligence and humor, lingers in the mind like a dream.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

A brilliantly inventive story of art, love, and loss.

-- "Morten Hoi Jensen, author of A Difficult Death: The Life and Work of Jens Peter Jacobsen"

Surprising, suspenseful, and deeply affecting...written in prose as elegant and precise as a mathematical proof...A beautiful and enlarging read.
