Reviews
"Jester cousin to Pound's Cantos--notations that gradually cohere in an underlying progress, a drift toward the momentary reconciliation of art, intellect, and mortality."
"A cultural history of the Western world cast as a bricolage of decontextualized anecdotes, quotations, and facts . . . A lifetime's reading boiled down to sentences that have the terse clarity of epitaphs." -- James Gibbons
"This is a novel of a thousand voices at their most concise, outrageous and most telling, indefatigably conceived and executed with a learned sparkle. It stands out as a daring tour de force (yet again), just the kind of novel only Markson would take on and do with such uncompromising elan." -- Paul West
