Product Details


“McCourt is the author of perhaps the best novel about opera.” —Publishers Weekly

“McCourt makes brave comic choices, delighting in mythic celebrity while dissecting the ways it is made and sustained. Bravo! Encore!” —John Lahr

“Bravo, James McCourt, a literary countertenor in the exacting tradition of Firbank and Nabokov, who makes his daringly self-assured debut with this intelligent and very funny book.” —Susan Sontag

“Mawrdew Czgowchwz is a Zuleika Dobson of the opera world. James McCourt is an ecstatic fabulist, robustly funny and inventive, and touchingly in love with his subject. His novel is both special and precious, in the most honorable senses of those words.” —Newsweek

“A gloriously flamboyant debut. Take it in spoonfuls and you’ll find passages to fall in love with. Sooner or later, you may even find yourself reading them aloud to your friends.” —Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times
