"[This is a] quirky and entertaining tale of greed, treachery, and love."
"Mr. Walter . . . has always been more intuitive than linear, a believer in capricious destiny with a fine, freewheeling sense of humor."
"[A] novel whose decade- and continent-hopping ingenuity expertly scratches the seasonal itch for both literary depth and dazzle."
"Walter's prose is a joy--funny, brash, witty and rich with ironic twists." (starred review)
"[A] high-wire feat of bravura storytelling. Walter is a talented and original writer."
