“Appealingly meditative. . . . A compelling story, with a clever twist. . . . Kertész writes with characteristic lucidity, grace, and grim-gay humor.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer

“A sophisticated and brilliant dissection of nihilistic power and its servants.”
Times Literary Supplement (London)

“A timeless, placeless parable. . . . A chilling procedural of moral degradation.”
New York Magazine

"Hopefulness in the face of tragedy makes Kertesz a joy to read, even when he describes our darkest horrors."
The Believer

"Kertesz spins a deeply self-conscious web of psychological drama."
The New York Sun
