If the Americans have John Irving and the Colombians Gabriel García Márquez, we have Eric Dupont. And he’s every bit as good as them.

The narrative spreads through time and space; the act of storytelling (taking in all forms of gossip, rumour and fabulation) is likened to the flow of lava or the contagion of smallpox. There’s no stopping the fiercely readable voice of this book once it gets going, no holding its incestuous proliferation of stories down. […] it’s a wonderful read, a testament to the continuing richness and vitality of the art of fiction.
