"Pick up Josef Skvorecky's When Eve Was Naked and, I promise, you will be enriched, enlightened, entertained and more...I can't say enough about the delights of this volume. It's wise, it's witty, it's poignant, it's wry." --The Washington Post
"The stories read to some extent like a diary, capturing an emotional landscape in lucid detail...A delight only Skvorecky could write." --The New York Times Book Review
"The twenty-four stories in this collection are bubbles in time, verbal dioramas depicting a benign quality (innocence, comfort or just amiable confusion) destined for extinction. Refreshingly, Skvorecky...handles the heaviness of his material with a feather touch." --San Francisco Chronicle
