MEDIA REVIEWS

Beautiful, dreamlike and oddly beguiling - The Times

A charming, sinuous, playful novel...global, universal, in its scope and feeling - David Robson, Sunday Telegraph

Nooteboom writes beautifully. His prose is clean and precise without feeling sparse, and he manages to combine clarity with intense lyricism - Rebecca Abrahams, Guardian

A plot as finely tuned as a concert piano...this is a novel which finally soars - Glasgow Herald

Nooteboom has shown himself a master of ironic wisdom, but also of elated, elegiac feeling - Ben Rogers, Independent on Sunday
