"The stand-out moments of A Short Tale of Shame lie not in the resolution of the friend-love triangle, but in the characters’ semi-mythical experience of the journey."Tom Faure, Numero Cinq
"Like the best of Continental literature, Igov's short and haunting novel manages to be about everything and nothing at once."Publishers Weekly
