Humorous, charming, and written with the same beguiling grace and vividness as her story collection There Are Jews in My House, Vapnyar's first novel is a poignant and comic story about a delightfully sincere, modern-day muse.

Review quote

" A smart, fetching comic novel that has its heart in the Russian masters and its attitude in modern New York. . . . Full of generous intelligence." -- "The Boston Globe" " So good, so consistently fresh, funny and surprising, that every sentence is a pleasure" -- "San Francisco Chronicle" " [C]ringingly funny. . . . A captivating literary fairy tale gone awry." -- "The Miami Herald" " Beautifully observant and funny. . . . It's already easy to identify that Vapnyar touch, and to fall under its spell." -- "Entertainment Weekly"
