Product description


"A spectacular novel."
-- Alice Sebold, author of The Lovely Bones

"A marvel."

"The work of a first-rate novelist artful, moving and very beautiful."
-- The New York Times Book Review

"A gorgeous portrait of a complex and passionate man."
-- Azar Nafisi, author of Reading Lolita in Tehran

"A deep, lovely, and enthralling book that engages with the disquiet and drama of a famous writing life."

-- Michael Cunningham, author of The Hours
