There is much laughter in Teodorovici s novel, the uproarious laughter of characters faced with a ridiculous world, the healthy laughter of the reader, black humor, the absurd, self-irony, linguistic humor, and situational comedy. But behind the scenes there is also enormous sadness. The sadness of the clown (the reader-clown, the character-clown), who is all the sadder the more acutely he understands his condition as a man who, after having failed at life, cannot help but fail at death. (Sanda Tivadar, Familia)
