  • A virtuoso combination of nineteenth-century high realism with the experimentalism of the nouveau roman...the real narrative is that of bodies' actions on one another, their attraction and desires, their mutual memories

    Gábor Csordás
  • No writer in Europe today has dealt more eloquently with the obligations and moral conundrums of memory, private and collective, than the Hungarian novelist and essayist Peter Nadas

    New York Times
  • It's with remarkable dexterity that Nadas splices together the political, sexual and emotional histories of two families, the Hungarian Lippay Lehrs and the German Döhrings

    Thomas Marks, Telegraph
  • A fiendishly complex plot that leaps in time throughout the 20th century, and in a place through Mitteleuropa

    Toby Clements, Sunday Telegraph
  • Nadas is closer to Proust and Musil, and even to Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz, in his ultra-Freudian, or Lacanian approach... There are instances of real enchantment in Nadas' book

    George Gomori, Literary Review
