Review:
"Some of the best writing of Millhauser's increasingly brilliant career appears in this collection of three imaginative and unusual novellas."

Kirkus, 12/15/2002

Review:
"...Milhauser can get drunk on words, but as he's honed his voice he's shed much of the excess....[H]e's used his lush prose and archetypal motifs to trace the outer arcs of passion, places where eros and violence meet....Romantic triangles, illicit love and jealousy...are recurring elements in these three novellas."

Laura Miller, New York Times Book Review, 03/09/2003

Book Description: Westminister, Maryland, U.S.A.: Alfred a Knopf Inc, Westminister, Maryland, U.S.A., 2003. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Book Description: From the author of Edwin Mullhouse and the Pulitzer Prize–winning Martin Dressler: three dazzling novellas about the many shapes of love. “Revenge” is a tour de force about erotic love and betrayal, told through the voice of a woman showing her home to a stranger with a disturbing secret. As the once-happy wife moves from living room to bedroom, she insinuates herself into her guest’s (and the reader’s) mind—and we witness the gradual unfolding of a carefully meditated scheme of revenge. “An Adventure of Don Juan” and the title novella transform classic fables into immediate, wholly original tales of romance. The first puts the famous lover on a country estate in England, where he attempts to perpetrate a brilliant seduction only to discover something surprising about the human heart. In the mesmerizing “The King in the Tree,” Millhauser explores devotion and denial, casting the tragedy of Tristan and Ysolt as an engrossing tale of a king’s infatuation with his beautiful wife—and the agony of her betrayal with his own nephew. Full of passion, trysting, and fatal pleasures, these three brilliant novellas are rich with the many gifts of our most persistently imaginative romancer. From the Back Cover “Millhauser can get drunk on words, but he’s honed his voice and uses his lush prose and archetypal motifs to trace the outer arcs of passion, places where eros and violence meet .As the old maps say: Here be monsters. This writer is in love with a large, very beautiful tiger, and at its best the fiction he produces is an exquisite negotiation with the beast.” –Laura Miller, New York Times Book Review (front page review) “The secret lies in the unhurried elegance of his sentences: Millhauser know how not to overwrite, to let exactly as many small words as necessary do the work rather than straining to impress. He never fumbles a word out of place, never lets fall an unfelicitous phrase, and especially never looks down during his high-wire imaginative act.” About the Author Steven Millhauser received the Pulitzer Prize for Martin Dressler. He is a recipient of the Lannan Award and has been honored by the American Academy of Arts and Letters. The author of nine previous books, he teaches at Skidmore College and lives with his wife and two children in Saratoga Springs, New York. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-832956338
