"A terrific page-turner about a stage magician and a traveling textile designer who meet in Vegas and marry two days later, and all the mystery and mayhem that ensues." --Elle

"A lyrical novel that will enchant you with a love story and with poetic, evocative prose." --Shelf Awareness

"An uncommonly good first novel about the unlikely love between a lonely woman and a most unusual magician. It's a magical story, full of passion, heart break, and wonder." --Peter Hedges, author of What's Eating Gilbert Grape

"In this beguiling first novel, Pochoda brings an acute eye and vivid imagination to the ordinary details of life. The result is magic itself." --Rebecca Johnson, author of And Sometimes Why

"Ivy Pochoda's language is hypnotic, her story refreshingly original. Most important of all, the characters she conjured made me ache. Prepare to let go of the mundane and embrace the fantastical in this well-imagined debut. It is utterly spellbinding." --Amy McKinnon, author of Tethered

"Ivy Pochoda's brilliant first novel convinces us of the magic of reality, and the reality of magic. A seductive delight for all the senses, not least, the sixth." --Galt Niederhoffer, author of The Romantics
