"French writer and librarian Martinez explores the purpose of libraries amid sweeping societal changes in this whimsical novel. ... satire with wit and quirky characters. This will delight fans of absurdist fiction." -Publishers Weekly
"The caustic and often hilarious story of the misadventures of a library, all the concerns and issues facing the professions ... The fantastic with a hint of irony of Cyrille Martinez's writing is reminiscent of Marcel Ayme." -Livres Hebdo
"Over a documentary base that it itself worth reading, he composes a passionate fiction, almost fantastic, showing the defeat of the printed word by the digital." -L'Humanite
