Brilliant social novel, a pleasure to read.

Excellent development of the characters and their motivations.

Again I am liking a book about characters (some of them) that are not really admirable, or likable, but who deserve respect for their choices, their tenacity and strength nonetheless.

Bezmozgis elegant writing mixed with the darkest humor and poetic prose are unparalleled at this time...

The best editorial review was from Publishers Weekly:

"the book remains an assured, complex social novel whose relevance will be obvious to any reader genuinely curious about recent history, the limits of love, and the unexpected burdens that attend the arrival of freedom. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
