“Moving briskly while ranging from high humor to the blackest dread, this is an original, astonishingly smart and expertly entertaining meditation on imagination and its powers; one of the very finest works of Straub’s long career, it’s a sure bet for future award nominations.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
