“A sweet, increasingly surreal fable….The fantastic events seem less momentous than the almost saintly likeableness of Lucio, one of those people whom things happen to with a cockeyed vengeance. Levine’s slangy, salt-of-the-earth translation helps to make this shapely and appealing.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Its broader themes of compatibility and well-being, and man’s attachment to place and routine, connect it with such older twentieth-century masterworks as Mann’s The Magic Mountain.”

“A witty and ironic comment on our desires and the social structures we have created. This tale…weds laughter and terror in haunting fashion.”
Publishers Weekly
