Baricco is an exemplary storyteller . . . [he] shows a Bertolucci-like, chair-hopping, gesticulating sense of sheer joy, that turns this tragic tale into a bittersweet tragi-comedy. * * Time Out * * Compelling, profound and sharply funny -- Stephanie Merritt * * Observer * * Highly romantic and breathtakingly lyrical * * New York Times Book Review * * Baricco has produced a work of miraculously spun sugar, at which many people will gasp in admiration. * * Spectator * * This is a novel driven by the pleasure of narrative. Unburdened by a single perspective, the writing is ethereal. * * Telegraph * * Baricco has produced a beguilingly unusual beach book. * * The Times * *
