Review:

"Over and over in the course of these linked essays Aciman shows himself wanting to be elsewhere . . . You don't need to have lost an Alexandria to understand what he does with place and time and memory. After all, we are all exiles in a way-from our own childhoods, our own pasts, if nothing else. It is that remembered aspect of ourselves, that shadowy other life, that Andre Aciman's new book so piercingly addresses."--Wendy Lesser, "NYTBR"
"The incomplete and unstable state of nostalgia is what Aciman tries to fix in this beautiful memoir. He lives in his mind. But sharing that mind is a rare privilege."--Barbara Fisher, " The Boston Sunday Globe"
"One feels that if Proust had not existed Mr Aciman would have invented him."--Richard Bernstein, " The New York Times"
