By the author of the highly acclaimed literary bestseller Dictionary of the Khazars, this is a tale of a mysterious quest that is part modern Odyssey and part crossword puzzle. It begins with the story of a brilliant but failed architect in Belgrade and his search for his father, an officer who vanished in Greece during World War II.

“A hugely ambitious, playful, inventive, demanding, magical, linguistically sensuous reading experience.”—The Washington Post
 
“A brilliantly playful and haunting novel.”—The New York Times Book Review
