Funny, surreal, absurd and charmingly preposterous.The funniest novelist youve never heard of. . . .? Few comic novelists get characters talking so naturally, and amusingly.Readers whod like to spend a little time at the corner where a brisker Haruki Murakami meets a drier 30 Rock would do well to seek out Filipacchis radiantly intelligent and very funny novel.A surreal and utterly compelling triumph.[A] farcical novel . . . riveting to read.[A] zanily satirical, spot-on novel.Magic spills from the pores of Filipacchis story. . . .? The resulting romp is a witty and honest rendering of the unknowable distance between perception and reality, exploring the possibility that beauty is literally in the eyes of the beholder.A delight for the mind that penetrates the heart.Amanda Filipacchi writes with a deceptive ease, creating magic out of thin air. She makes the ordinary come alive with possibility and stuffs her pages full of laughter, sadness and characters that are unforgettable.A seductively powerful fable about the ugly powers of beauty, the redemptive powers of creativity, and the nature of true love. Every page abounds in mystery, delight and surprise.The best comic novelist writing today.A delightful gem, an unusual mixture of laughter and suspense.Takes a fairy tale, flips it on its head, and adds an element of murder . . . will both make you laugh and keep you on the edge of your seat.Loopily entertaining. A sure comic touch . . . smart and sweet . . . a tribute to the pleasures of friendship.
