Product Details


“Shadows and shadow selves do indeed pervade the six stories in this collection, brought together in English for the first time…each of [Bove’s] meticulously crafted stories discloses a quasi-surrealism with dashes of Poe, Kafka, and Dostoyevsky. Bove also shows himself a master of marginalization and fragmented relationships…An elegant translation of dark, brooding, and disturbing little narratives.” —Kirkus Reviews

“One of the best novelists to emerge in France during the interwar years . . . a unique, powerful, and insightful stylist.” —The Review of Contemporary Fiction

“The writing is so clear, so modest, and yet not at all modest. It’s a form of writing that doesn’t exist before him, nor since. It’s like drawing with very clear lines.” —Peter Handke

“The neat turns of Bove’s stories make them engaging little reads…What makes the collection worthwhile is the writing, Bove’s deft touch and turns of phrase consistently impressing. These are sad stories, but the craftsmanship behind them makes for considerable reading pleasure.” —M. A. Orthofer, The Complete Review
