"[A] unique, harmonious, and brilliant book. Her language is uncommonly strong and pure; her images are magnificent for their solid and precise power... this is literature of the highest quality, the work of a genuine writer." -- Vladimir Nabokov
"Haunting... as graceful and subtle as Chekhov." -- Anne Tyler, New Republic
"Like Turgenev and Chekhov, of whom she is the rightful heir, Berberova... is uncannily shrewd about romance, about its bright promise, without making her characters' real satisfaction seem trite." -- New York Review of Books
"...an elegant tale of emigration, patriotism and destitution'... 'With echoes of Tolstoy and and Chekhov, the novel is at once soberly realistic and richly symbolic." --Bryan Karetnyk, The Financial Times Life & Arts
