"This smart, precise, and beautiful novella reads like an emotional time bomb. Everything is quiet at first, then comes a slow build of tension, and then comes a strange ticking sound, and then—BOOM—suddenly your heart blows up. You can't write better than this. It's simply perfect." ~ Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Big Magic and Eat, Pray, Love.
