Reviews

"An old-fashioned, romantic, and thoroughly enjoyable story about a self-obsessed concert pianist... great fun."
"There is an imaginative verve in Christopher's storytelling, which takes the plot on several unexpected turns... The depiction of the world of a virtuoso performer--the tensions and doubts, the rigor and intensive self-scrutiny--ultimately provides Christopher with a potent metaphor for dealing with questions of authenticity and sincerity, intimacy, love, and eroticism. Through this metaphor, the novel achieves a depth and poignancy."
