Critical Praise

"Densely atmospheric and genuinely romantic, the novel is most reminiscent of the Hollywood films of the forties, when moral choices were rendered not in black-and-white but in smoky shades of gray."

——The New Yorker

"Richly atmospheric and satisfying."

——USA Today

"[Furst] glides gracefully into an urbane pre–World War II Europe and describes that milieu with superb precision."

——The New York Times
