Review

"'Practically every sentence elicits a gasp of surprise or pleasure... there is truth and beauty here and a lovely story of loneliness and obsession.' Daily Telegraph; 'A remarkable first novel... This original, ambitious book demands full concentration - and deserves it.' Sunday Telegraph; 'The bastard son of Philip Roth and A. S. Byatt.' New Statesman; 'A formidable achievement and truly a book to get lost in.' Daily Mail" --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
