Reviews

A novel of blazing imaginative and intellectual force
*Salman Rushdie*

To describe this novel as spine-tingling in its indescribable poetic effect would be to trivialize its profoundly tragic theme. Say then that it is heart-stunning
*The New York Times*

Astonishing ... A forthright sensuality mixed with a fine historical feeling for the nightmare moments in modern history, a dreamlike fluidity and quickness
*John Updike*

A dazzler that lingers in the mind
*People*

A remarkable and original novel ... there is no novel to my knowledge which resembles this in technique or ideas. It stands alone
*Graham Greene*

This novel is a reminder that fiction can amaze
*Time*

Precise, troubling, brilliant
*Observer*
