Editorial Reviews

"Think of Borges, Michael Ende, Saki, Japan's Kobo Abe. Now think of Eric McCormack. Sharp, quirky, refreshingly unemotional and macabre." --Time Out (London)

"It says much for Eric McCormack's narrative skill that one rapidly accepts the strange conditions of his particular and peculiar world." --The Sunday Times
