Haunting, sad, yet lovely . . . An important, disturbing and powerful novel that deserves attention.


Frisch is a great, and even an inspiring, writer, because he gives us the unique sense that the act of analysis is a passionate act, impelled by our fear of the world's dissolution and our knowledge of our own fragility.


Haunting, sad, yet lovely....An important, disturbing and powerful novel that deserves attention. Poetry of the mind rather than the senses--sparse and austere, with every detail chosen for its resonances.... A small book but a major achievement.
