Reviews

  • A virtuoso balletic pas de deux of memory and imagination... There is something reminiscent in the fictional young Vila-Matas of Woody Allen... Not only does this novel glitter with sharp ideas and observations, it may just be the best book I've ever read about Paris.

    TLS
  • Utterly compelling...breathtakingly accomplished... I was left satisfied, yet somehow wishing this captivating raconteur had continued indefinitely

    Literary Review
  • By the end of it I was fully seduced by its self-portrait of the artist as a young writer... This wonderful book only reconfirms the never-ending-ness of Paris

    Independent
  • Vila-Matas's touch is light and whimsical, while his allusions encompass a rogue's gallery of world literature

    The Economist
  • One of Spain's most inventive and enjoyable novelists

    Irish Examiner
