"Shalev creates a world that has the richness of invention and the obsessiveness of dreams."
The New York Times Book Review

"Shalev has deftly layered Yair’s story in such a manner that a refreshingly nuanced picture of Israel emerges."
The Miami Herald

"Vivid characters and sharp dialogue… By working stories in the past and present against each other, Shalev brings into questions the validity, and the reliability, of memory."
The New York Times Book Review

"In homing pigeons, Shalev has found a motif that is replete with symbolism and scriptural allusion that he uses expertly, with maximum layered effect."
Ottawa Citizen

"Brilliant… Universal in its scope and examination of human longing for a sense of roosting."
The Jerusalem Post

"An exquisite creation, a work of quiet language tat needs no shouting to attain its impact."
Chicago Jewish Star

"Stunning… This gem of a story about the power of love, which won Israel’s Brenner Prize, brims with luminous originality."
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
