"A magical, metaphysical realm ... Captivating, enchanting, delightful." --The New York Times "Endlessly fascinating. A beguiling inquiry into the not-at-all theoretical, utterly time-tangled, tragic and sublime nature of human life." --The Boston Globe "Lightman is an artist who paints with the notion of time." --Los Angeles Times
