"[Goldman's] swashbuckling fable is nutball funny . . . A 'classic'
medieval melodrama that sounds like all the Saturday serials you
ever saw, feverishly reworked by the Marx Brothers." --
"One of the funniest, most original, and deeply moving novels I have read in a long time." -- Los Angeles Times
