Editorial Reviews

Le Figaro
“ Garden, Ashes will influence the most current trends in the art of the literary avant-garde—so much so that it may even shape the course of the novel.”
New York Review of Books
“In Kis's case . . . it is the consistent quality of the local prose that counts. It is how, sentence by sentence, the song is built, and immeasurable meanings meant. It is the rich regalia of his rhetoric that leads us to acknowledge his authority. On his page, trappings are not trappings, but sovereignty itself.”
