At a lake within a lake in Finland, improvisationists compete in an Olympiad of extemporaneous narratives amid charges of plagiarism, intensifying rivalries, and the possibility of KGB interference

From Publishers Weekly:

Thomas (The White Hotel) calls this an "improvisational novel." It is set at a fictional Olympiad in Finland, where competitors spontaneously narrate long, intricate tales that are judged for artistic quality. PW gave Swallow sevens and eights, remarking, "The sometimes slight fictions cannot always support the controlling intention, but the ambitious enterprise is refreshingly imaginative, a nimble exercise in literary levitation."
