Praise

**Shortlisted for the Booker International Prize**

“Brilliant and unputdownable.” –Salman Rushdie

“Profoundly enchanting. . . . A magnificent story. . . . A spellbinding memorial to the nameless souls lost in Europe’s vicious past, whose whispers are best heard in fables.” The New York Times Book Review

“Kehlmann is a gifted and sensitive storyteller. . . . He is a playful realist, a rationalist drawn to magical games and tricky performances, a modern who likes to look backward. . . . Brilliant.” The New Yorker
 
“Prodigiously imaginative. . . . Brilliant, blackly sardonic. . . . In Mr. Kehlmann’s unforgettable joker we have a picture of humankind in all of its madness and strutting pride.” The Wall Street Journal

“Kehlmann, like Tyll, is a trickster. . . . Entertaining us like a jester on a tightrope and reminding us of the danger of a fall.” —Washington Post

“A laugh-out-loud-then-weep-into-your-beer comic novel about a war. . . . Ambitious, clever, tricksy, self-reflective. . . . It’s operatic in its gestures and heartbreaking in its absurdity.” The Times (UK)

“A rip-roaring yarn. . . . It plunges a modern reader into an astonishingly violent and dirty alternative reality. . . . But Tyll is a very funny novel, too. . . . There are many ways in which this strife-torn Europe, fractured by religion, intolerance and war, is a reflection of our own times.” The Guardian
