Reviews

  • "A dazzling, crazy-quilt monument to the imagination"

    Paul Auster, New York Times
  • "An eccentric, madly ambitious scheme to display life all at once. The product of a hectically ingenious intelligence, like James Joyce's"

    Victoria Glendinning, The Times
  • "Amazing, moving and lovable"

    New Statesman
  • "The finest novel to appear in French since Beckett's trilogy"

    Times Literary Supplement
  • "Very funny and very sad... A treasure-chest of stories, something to be enjoyed by anyone who has ever responded to works on the same scale and in the same spirit as Rabelais and Chaucer and Sterne"
