"Such a pleasure to read...nothing less than a triumph." -New York Times Book Review

In this "captivating" (Time Out New York) novel, an aging author-now out of print and barely remembered by the literary world that once fleetingly embraced him-is courted by a brash young graduate student who wants to write her thesis on him. What ensues is a story that is at once comical, sensitive and sharply insightful-a work that has already earned astonishing reviews, and that "in every way fulfills the promise of Morton's lovely first novel, The Dylanist. "

"Wonderful...this is what a novel is supposed to be." -Newsday*

"Subtle, tender, and moving." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Stirring." -San Francisco Chronicle

"Elegant...rich with language and ideas."-Forward
