This book was amazing! I absolutely must see Tristan and Isolde now, because this story was so original and complex and beautiful and such a surprisingly lovely tapestry of dissonant voices that do not seem at first to blend but end together in such a satisfying and resounding way that it just seems impossible that it is not somehow taken from the opera that is the crux of this entire story. I love, love, loved it. I laughed and cried.

Mr. Gallaway, this book was an absolute delight. Thank you for writing it.
