About the Author
Arthur Phillips is the internationally bestselling author of three New York Times Notable Books--Prague, the winner of the Los Angeles Times/Art Seidenbaum Award for First Fiction; The Song Is You; and The Tragedy of Arthur--and The Egyptologist. He lives in New York.

"[Balances] a moving story of familial and romantic love on a deliberately unsteady fictional edifice . . . [an] exuberant chimera of a novel."--The New Yorker

"Splendidly devious."--The New York Times Book Review

"Wily and witty . . . an engrossing family saga [with] sparkling and imaginative prose. Shakespeare would applaud a man who does him so proud."--The Boston Globe

"Arthur Phillips has found the perfect vehicle for his cerebral talents: his ingenuity; his bright, elastic prose; and, most notably, his penchant for pastiche--for pouring his copious literary gifts into old vessels and reinventing familiar genres."--The New York Times

"Devious and exhilarating . . . an irresistible family drama bundled into an exploration of fraud and authenticity."--The Wall Street Journal

"A circus of a novel, full of wit, pathos and irrepressible intelligence."--Minneapolis Star Tribune

"The story of a family that is Shakespearean in several senses . . . [The Tragedy of Arthur] contains literary echoes of Nabokov, Stoppard and even . . . Thomas Pynchon."--San Francisco Chronicle
