“Blyth spins out Florian’s second novel in sinuous prose . . . It’s testament to the story’s sharp humor and crisp voice—even those amorous passages narrated by the cat—that the reader lingers in each scene, sharing them with the characters moment-by-moment.”
"A genial tale about fate and romance..."

...[Florian] revels in the sensual details of Bucharest street life
, food, sex, and dentistry..."
