Wonderful, irresistibly unique, funny, and amazing
A perfect novel...Alameddine is one of the greatest living writers working in English.
Moving and memorable
Alameddine's new novel unfolds like a secret... creating a tale...humorous and heartbreaking and always real
Rabih Alameddine is one our most daring writers - daring not in the cheap sense of lurid or racy, but as a surgeon, a philosopher, an explorer, or a dancer. In this delightful novel, he takes his greatest risks yet, and succeeds brilliantly, in a work that while marked by radical formal innovation, manages to be warm, sad, funny and moving.
