Description

This is a novel which is difficult to describe because of its complexity. Essentially, it tells the story of a family, but it’s told with flashbacks and fragments in such a way that a reader may easily get lost. Nonetheless, it’s a good sense of being lost, a sense in which one explores new territories and discovers new beauty.

Praise

always hurrying along in anticipation of new delights (and possible clarifications); but the condition of the delights is necessarily a tantalizing mystery; and that, and her grandson in unpredictable fragments.

Reading, her daughter, I repeatedly tell myself that I should stop and make a rational summary of what is happening, is the greatest delight of all in this ravishing and generous work. –Harry Mathews, rarely explained, remain shrouded in ambiguity, ultimately
