Reviews

The overall effect recalls the cerebral play of Borges, the dark humor of Pynchon, and meditative lyricism of Proust.
This brilliant trilogy must be one of the greatest novels of our age.--Antony Beevor ""Books of the Year" "
I would like to forget this novel but it is hard to get it out of one's mind. We wait uneasily for Volume Three.--Margaret Drabble ""Books of the Year" "
Your Face Tomorrow is already being compared to Proust's A la recherche du temps perdu, and rightly so.
