Product Details


There is in Tabucchi’s stories the touch of the true magician, who astonishes us by never trying too hard for his subtle, elusive and remarkable effects. —The San Francisco Examiner

Tabucchi’s work has an almost palpable sympathy for the oppressed. —The New York Times

By now the appearance of a new novel by Antonio Tabucchi is a literary event. —World Literature Today

Like good short fiction, the stories in this volume act in ways that suggest a wider world outside the frame of the story. —Sycamore Review

A witty and subtle meditation on the limitations of memory and imagination. —Nick Hornby, Times Literary Supplement

[Tabucchi’s] prose creates a deep, near-profound and sometimes heart-wrenching nostalgia and constantly evokes the pain of recognizing the speed of life’s passing which everyone knows but few have the strength to accept … Wonderfully thought-provoking and beautiful. —Alan Cheuse, NPR’s All Things Considered
