Reviews

[A] book about another, more perfect book never destined to be written . . . It is like a big, polished stone thrown into the babbling brook of ordinary novels.
Murnane examines the nature of reading and writing and the construction of truths and fictions. And somehow, without the use of metaphor or simile, but simple transparency, he approaches the underside of these concepts, the heart of the matter, the magic of the thing that is storytelling. --Smiljana Glisovic
Murnane is quite simply one of the finest writers we have produced. --Peter Craven
An obsessive, funny, wonderfully self-invented writer at the height of his powers. --Michael Heyward
