“Strikingly convincing … sinewy and lyrical.”–The New York Times Book Review

“A lusty, bawdy, teeming, festooning, dancing marvel of a book. Within its crafty interlacings, we can read its buoyant meaning: that life, for all its woes, is essentially a comedy.”–The Los Angeles Times Book Review

“An artistic triumph.”–Publishers Weekly
