Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Going is a brilliant novel—a deft, contemplative thriller that probes five lives united by art, chance, and exile. The story’s great themes are erotic, artistic integrity, and death. Its genders are crossed or at war, its night streets and romances equally treacherous, its wit delightfully dark. Yet the engagements with art are profound. And the climax—a stunner—is suffused with justice and light." David Jame Duncan, author The River Why and The Brothers K
