Praise

“Erudite, sexy, richly textured, and packed with delights. Like Salinger’s Glass family or Wes Anderson’s Tenenbaums, the Wolff siblings seem to crash in on the terrestrial world from some more eccentric orbit.” —Garth Risk Hallberg, author of City on Fire

“Rachel and Zach speak in a crackling lingo that’s rich in languages, history, fairy tales, memories and romantic love . . . Her tender, patient brilliance [is] the perfect foil for his wise physicality and unconscious force . . . The many, centuries-spanning, highly imagined worlds Richler re-creates here depart from and heighten Rachel and Zach’s present-day narrative.” Booklist

“Jewel-like bits of fable and fact are interwoven with modern-day conversations . . . as the tale of the Wolff family unfolds and reaches back into history in adroit and surprising ways.” Library Journal

“Ambitious . . . Exuberant . . . The best parts of the narrative lie in the quiet moments when Rachel and Zach confront their questionable brand of love and the tumultuous effect it has on their lives and loved ones.” —Publishers Weekly
