Andrea Canobbio's remarkable novel [...] avoids the obvious pitfalls, largely as a result of [Canobbio's] acuity and inventiveness, the specificity and density of his detail, the elegance of his style, and the depth of his psychological insight ... This sort of fiction has consciousness as its subject, and Canobbio's ability to engage us in the consciousness of his characters is what keeps us enthralled.
The pleasure is in the telling in this eminently wise and satisfying book
Exhilaratingly passionate . . . Lush and meditative.
Italo Calvino meets Paul Auster.
