Editorial Reviews

From The New Yorker

This novel ... is that rare postmodern experiment which actually remembers to tell a story.... a splendidly original achievement.

Review

"More than just a tongue- in-cheek parody of a literary memoir . . . it is a social history of the first rank . . ." --Translation Review


". . . That rare postmodern experiment which actually remembers to tell a story . . . a splendidly original achievement." --The New Yorker


"An inventive and clever parody of the coming-of-age tale . . . the result is nostalgic, agreeably sexy, and quite charming." --Kirkus Reviews
--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Format: Paperback
Don't be put off by the term "experimental". This novel is accessible and entertaining. The story transcends the Central European setting. If you mention this work to your friends and family, they'll think you're something of an intellectual ... but really you've just enjoyed a (short) well-written novel. Highly recommended.
