Reviews

"Part ghost story, part psychological mystery and part vaudeville show. Think Scheherazade by way of "Tristram Shandy" by way of "The Sixth Sense."--Washington Post

"A tour de force in its mastery of styles, the book also has moments of high silliness--though toward the end Donohue weaves the threads of plot together in a surprising and affecting way."--Kirkus Reviews

"Donohue's faultless eye for character and keen sense of humor keeps what could easily become a muddled mess pristine, with members of his quorum shining individually but also acting as cogs in the larger story's machinery. There are moments when the reader is left to wonder how things can possibly come together, but it's worthwhile to trust Donohue's narrators as they lead this puzzling and greatly satisfying trip."--Publishers Weekly

"Donohue's polished prose holds the story together and offers a more than satisfying ending."--Booklist

"VERDICT: Donohue's tour de force blends aspects of time travel and reincarnation genres into a witty whole. With a touch of David Mitchell and Audrey Niffenegger, but a witty style uniquely the author's own, this novel about a clueless man, who may in some future life get it right, is a pleasure to read."--Library Journal

"[T]he product here is uniquely Donohue, and the craft seamless in the spinning of an absorbing skein of yarns in a marvelous display of voice weaving together to form a single tapestry: a "parti-colored utterance" (to quote Annie Dillard) unfolding about love, mortality, men and women, memory, family, and the fundamental force of storytelling." --Buffalo News
