Product Details

Praise

“A vastly impressive book. . . . Dee has given us a full rich cultural chronicle.” –The New York Times Book Review

“Pure literary entertainment . . . Palladio has narrative drive and energy, dramatic characters and conflicts, easygoing prose . . . humor and drama.” –The Denver Post

“Dee unites a gripping love story with an ambitious novel of ideas.” –Newsday

“In gorgeous language, hypnotic as a fairy tale . . . Palladio takes the moral temperature of our times.” –Newark Star-Ledger

Palladio shocks, delights and invigorates.” –The Seattle Times

“Dee is always able to locate the abstract in the concrete. . . . A Tribeca studio or a small town abortion clinic or a Christian cultist sermon, are all equally interesting to him, and his clear, understated prose gives them a precise fictional life.” –The Boston Phoenix

“Robustly imagined.” –Time Out New York

“Dee perceptively explores the reciprocity of private manias and decadent social trends . . . dramatizing piquant questions of authenticity and mendacity, purity and depravity, leadership and despotism, love and manipulation.” –Booklist
