Reviews

"Whether he's writing about the decline and fall of our civilization or a guy who thinks he's accidentally killed his lover, Thirlwell's prose bounces us into a fulfilled state of happiness and wonder."--Gary Shteyngart, Salon

"[A] devious tragicomedy." --Sam Sacks, The Wall Street Journal

"Marvelously entertaining . . . Thirlwell has written a book that is all malaise."--Scott Esposito, San Francisco Chronicle

"A novel that baffles, delights, and distresses in equal measure . . . full of the most dazzling imaginative leaps, stunning set pieces, and beautifully stylish prose."--Alex Preston, Financial Times

"Thirlwell goes in for giddy performance, brilliant improvisation. . . . He revels in the artificiality of text and language, the sheer madeness of books, and part of the pleasure of reading him is to see him take pleasure in the process of making."--Adam Kirsch, The Atlantic
