Review:

"A dazzling, crazy-quilt monument to the imagination" (Paul Auster New York Times)

"An eccentric, madly ambitious scheme to display life all at once. The product of a hectically ingenious intelligence, like James Joyce's" (Victoria Glendinning The Times)

"Amazing, moving and lovable" ( New Statesman)

"The finest novel to appear in French since Beckett's trilogy" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Very funny and very sad... A treasure-chest of stories, something to be enjoyed by anyone who has ever responded to works on the same scale and in the same spirit as Rabelais and Chaucer and Sterne" ( Scotsman)

Book Description:

'The last major event in the history of the novel' Italo Calvino
