[For ages 18+] In this novel, Daniel Kehlmann's "lightly surreal style [is] a mixture of comedy, romance and the macabre, with flashes of magical realism that read like Borges in the Black Forest," according to The Washington Post Book World. Hannelore Wilfert, emirita professor of German at Russell Sage College, reviews the book.
