"A remarkable document, notable for both its literary acuity and its ability to evoke the experience of growing up in a police state, in a culture that is dreary and surreal by turns, where, as [Zagajewski] puts it, 'the Zeitgeist chisels our thoughts and mocks our dreams.'"
"Full of pithy and compelling observations on art and society, of luminous descriptions of Krakow and Paris . . . this is a book to be read once through and returned to often."
"While the absence of apocalypse suggests that Zagajewski has moved beyond the avant-garde, the incredible variety and intricacy of his prose make clear that he is still in the midst of his own quiet revolution."
—John Palattella, Dissent
