A Reading and Discussion
by André Aciman
This book reads as if [Aciman] has taken his three previous novels, combined and distilled them down to their essence… Aciman is all the way himself here. He writes with the ferocity of a writer who’s finally getting his vision down, and he has to say it, has to get it out. He’s made a magnificent, living thing. -- Paul Lisicky, The New York Times
