"Ambitious...Tolkin is taking on the shades of literature's foremost anatomists of ambiguously motivated murder....Tolkin harnesses the image-making faculty in a reader's brain and puts it to work in the service of his own uniquely moral storytelling."
"A slender tale that begins like one of Tolkin's trademark black comedies before veering off into a fable far riskier...An enigmatic yet haunting tribute to the power of storytelling."
