“[A] remarkable piece of work…Egan effectively echoes the works of Gothic writers such as Ann Radcliffe (“The Mysteries of Udolpho”) and Horace Walpole (“Castle of Otranto”), fusing a seemingly moribund genre with elements borrowed from the metafictions of John Barth, Italo Calvino and others. It’s tricky; but it’s a trick only a terrifically talented writer could pull off.” –Ron Antonucci
