Reviews

"Her style is brilliantly heartless, and cork-dry; original herself, she is a witty examiner of human and cultural eccentricity. She is, above all, playful... What grounds all DeWitt's brilliance and game-playing is the way that she dramatizes a certain kind of hyperintelligent rationalism and probes its irregular distribution of blindness and insight...a wonderfully funny book, but comedy dances near the abyss; the apprehension of humor's frailty links DeWitt to the tragicomic tradition of Cervantes, Sterne, and Nabokov" -- James Wood * New Yorker *
"Fiercely intelligent, very funny and unlike anything else I've ever read" -- Mark Haddon
"A triumph - a genuinely new story, a genuinely new form" -- A. S. Byatt
"A bold, brilliant book...original both in content and form... DeWitt's zeal cannot fail to enchant" * Guardian *
"An exhilaratingly literate and playful first novel by a fresh, electrifying talent. DeWitt goes to the top of the class...her adventurousness spins out on an epic scale" * New York Times *
