An intriguing and atmospheric novel worthy of its inspiration. It is admirably served by Antonia Lloyd-Jones' nuanced and readable translation. ( Independent)
A delightful period piece... His style is charmingly effective, the book written with an understated wit very much of the era in which it is set, and gently, deceptively provocative ( Observer)
Engaging... Huelle is a skilful ironist who displays great subtlety of touch as he embraces the absurd ( Financial Times)
A breezy and ingenious comic prequel to The Magic Mountain (Books of the Year) (Sean O’Brien TLS)
A writer whose work is full of depth and allusion... pulses with irony that Mann would have been proud of... wonderfully absurd humour ( Independent on Sunday)
"'An exhilirating, liberating, brief and delightful novel with a story at every turning' New Statesman 'Quirky, thoughtful and often poetic, it opens a subjective and fascinating window on to the recent past' The Times 'Cultish, electrifying memoir' Independent on Sunday 'Huelle writes in such an engaging, chatty style that you hardly notice the fraught circumstances underlying every tale' Guardian 'Playful, bittersweet, juggling irony with regret' Independent"
