About the Author
"Gavelis's first novel to be translated into English is philosophical, symbolic, and full of imagery that is both disturbing and beautiful. ... Keep reading and you will be rewarded with a provocative and chilling narrative, one that suggests Joyce, Kafka, and Camus." -Library Journal. "Narratives and divergent timelines collide in apparent chaos, without losing the thread of the story for a second. We finally understand: this is a fractal epic, very cleverly put together, where the smallest anecdotal detail refers to the macrocosm of history as a whole. ... Terrifying and awesome." -Mehdi Belhaj Kacem, Philosophie Magazine. "At times shocking, at times depressing, Gavelis's Vilnius bursts with intensity and purpose, demanding that attention be paid to it. This novel is not for the faint of heart; it is a forceful statement that is on its way towards becoming a touchstone of 20th-century literature." -Andrew Wessels, bookslut.com. "Gavelis's urban grunge and his portrayal of the bleakness and absurdity of Soviet life provide the perfect backdrop for what, at times, is a curiously hilarious novel. ... Uncertainty reigns in Gavelis's Vilnius, and the novel challenges its reader with the simple question: who's crazy now?" -Julija Sukys, Lituanus.
