"Wizardly Doctorow presents an ingenious, haunting odyssey that unfolds within a labyrinth built out of the detritus of war and excess." (starred review)
Donna Seaman, Booklist Upfront, 07/01/2009Review:
"[A] beautiful and haunting novel....Doctorow is clear and compassionate in detailing [the brothers'] stunted emotions and phobias, and he creates a surprising kind of suspense as the stuff piles up, and the house begins to close around them into a big, messy tomb....Doctorow's writing is so lithe, the book easily sustains all of its thematic musings - about technology and history and consumer culture, even the novelist as kind of housebound Quixote."
