"A virtuoso balletic pas de deux of memory and imagination... There is something reminiscent in the fictional young Vila-Matas of Woody Allen... Not only does this novel glitter with sharp ideas and observations, it may just be the best book I've ever read about Paris." ( TLS)
"Utterly compelling...breathtakingly accomplished... I was left satisfied, yet somehow wishing this captivating raconteur had continued indefinitely" ( Literary Review)
"By the end of it I was fully seduced by its self-portrait of the artist as a young writer... This wonderful book only reconfirms the never-ending-ness of Paris" ( Independent)
"Vila-Matas's touch is light and whimsical, while his allusions encompass a rogue's gallery of world literature" ( The Economist)
"One of Spain's most inventive and enjoyable novelists" ( Irish Examiner)
