Reviews

Penelope Bagieu has mastered a magic trick, and it is this: Somehow, even as she suspends our disbelief, she can turn paper into flesh. And ink becomes lifeblood...her characters not only breathe and pulsate with vivid life. They also seem entirely, organically authentic in their own skin. --The Washington Post Funny and subversive, this sexy tale of a pompous and reclusive author, his ex-lover and agent and the young woman who pierces this closed circle (and completes the triangle) is beautifully told by Bagieu, a major talent and bestselling author in her native France. --The Miami Herald Bagieu crafts a fiendishly unexpected denouement that combines feminist politics with a generous affection for her heroine. --NPR

Wonderful . . . her cartooning style is a sheer delight. --Mental Floss

A funny and fresh exploration of authorship and a writer's relationship to fame...utterly charming.--Publishers Weekly
