Product description

Review

''A relentless exploration of how a man could fail to see clearly the woman he loves . . . [A novel] that knows how to move from the comic to the painful . . . Galchen has a knack for taking a thread and fraying it, so that a sentence never quite ends up where you expect.''--James Wood, The New Yorker

''There are passages so achingly beautiful in Galchen's strange puzzle of a book -- about love, resilience, and perception.''-- Jennifer Reese, Entertainment Weekly (Grade A)

''Galchen's dark and comical mystery is a clever take on the ways love, longing and overanalysis can drive you absolutely nuts.'' --Marie Claire

''At once mournful and playful . . . [a] droll, exquisite first novel.'' -- Laura Miller, Salon.com

''[An] enthralling debut. . . heartbreaking and maddening. . . . Don't be surprised if this gives you a Crying of Lot 49 nostalgia hit.'' -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

''A dense, fractally complex first novel by the conspicuously talented Rivka Galchen.''-- Lev Grossman, Time

''[A]n intricate puzzle powered by an urgently beating heart. . . A superb first novel.'' --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

''Genuinely suspenseful . . . Ms. Galchen is a writer to be watched.'' The Economist

''[A]stonishing. . . This dense, brilliant novel should be much in demand.'' --Library Journal
