Editorial Reviews

New York Times Book Review
[An] eccentric comic novel....
British Bulletin of Publications
Ana Maria Shua's epic work centers round... myth and memory, inextricably bound up with love, are strong. A rich story, individual yet universal, imaginatively told, that draws the reader into the Book of Memories.
BookPleasures.com
The author's zestful writing style that incorporates a great deal of black humor enhances the bickering sequences of events. Characters are believeable. . . A good read requiring a great deal of concentration.
