"[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."
