Reviews

`Beautiful, dancing, lively language, not a whiff of cliche, and an acute understanding of the frailty of human nature will come as no surprise to fans of Chabon's fiction...if you're not a fan of his writing yet, this book will surely change that' Independent

Praise for Michael Chabon:

`Poignant, affecting, witty, wrenching, a terrific writer.' Washington Post

`Chabon is a language magician, turning everything into something else just for the delight of playing tricks with words...Chabon's ornate prose makes (Raymond) Chandler's fruity observations of the world look quite plain...he writes like a dream' Guardian

`The natural exuberance and extravagance of Chabon's writing is matched by dazzling wit.' Sunday Telegraph

`His talent is indisputable...Chabon's novels are warm, witty, a little whimsical, always beautifully written...he is that rare and precious beast: a literary writer with crossover appeal...' GQ

'He is the most wonderful vaudeville performer.' Philip Hensher, in the Spectator `Books of the Year'
