"This is not just his finest novel so far. It is--in a characteristically hooded way--a novelist's act of self-definition, a midterm appraisal of his own resources. It is a wonderful book, with so many levels to it that it feels bottomless. ...You could light a city with it."Theroux, Paul is the author of 'Mosquito Coast ', published 2006 under ISBN 9780618658961 and ISBN 0618658963.
