Editorial Reviews

"Crisp and glittering...a thinking person's love story." -The Wall Street Journal"An absorbing, intelligent tale of love and the mysteriousness of the other." -The New York Times"An impressive debut. A highly original addition to the distinguished line of Jewish-American family romances." -The New Yorker"A seductive and satisfying novel that doesn't let you go." -Newsday"The work of a natural master...This is a tale about a hunger artist---i.e., about appetite and its suppression, about knowledge and self-knowledge, and--above all--about the riddle of human character." -Cynthia Ozick
