Like W.G. Sebald, Geoff Dyer and, more recently, writers such as Rachel Cusk, Teju Cole and Ben Lerner, Vila-Matas manages to create a productive uncertainty in the reader's mind through his disorientating effects... One of the distinct pleasures of Vila-Matas' books is that they function as little libraries stuffed with other authors' works * Literary Review * [Vila-Matas] chooses humour in a way that allows him to have big ideas while relentlessly making fun of them * Sunday Telegraph * A metafictional paean to storytelling... Diary, essay, thriller, conspiracy theory, posthumous memoir, novel-Vila-Matas uses all the materials to construct his latest metafictional fun house. * Kirkus Reviews * Vila-Matas's bouncy prose is the highlight of this lively ride through a writer's mind. * Publishers Weekly * Playful and funny and among the best Spanish novelists -- Colm Toibin The tremendously touching characters in Enrique Vila-Matas's novels who stumble from one place to the next, not really sure where they are going, but always on a quest are so deeply comical on the one hand, and so deeply poignant on the other, that you just have to give yourself up to it because you're in the hands of a master. -- Paul Auster Arguably Spain's most significant contemporary figure * New Yorker * A writer who has no equal in the contemporary landscape of the Spanish novel -- Roberto Bolano In this lively and inquisitive work of metafiction, a story about stories, Vila-Matas is as deliberate as he is playful, and induces the not altogether unpleasant sensation of getting lost ever deeper in a literary hall of mirrors -- Alastair Mabbott * Herald *
