"A deeply compassionate novel by a very fine writer."
(-Joseph O'Neill, author of Netherland
"Browner (The Uncertain Hour) has crafted a stupendous, thought- provoking, devilishly delicious novel that reads like Zen koan meets Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man with some modern "english" that sets the plate spinning. Highly recommended. "
(- Library Journal (starred review))
"A light, modern and keen look at the discord between whimsy and prudence."
