Cristina García…sharp-eyed, sardonic, hilarious…Julavits is at her acrobatically linguistic best here. Nearly every page contains a showstopping description or insight…One of the pleasures of reading novels is the possibility of stopping time and savoring, for a brief eternity, a character's deepest yearnings and illuminations. When Julavits pauses long enough to let us catch our breath, the results are frequently remarkable.
