By Tao Lin
Vintage, June 2013
"Mr. Lin casts a spell in Taipei. . . . [It is] his strongest book. At its best, it has distant echoes of early Hemingway, as filtered through Twitter and Klonopin: it's terse, neutral, composed of small and often intricate gestures. . . . it's about flickers of perception, flickers that the author catches as if they were fireflies."
— Dwight Garner, New York Times
"Here we have a serious, first-rate novelist putting all his skills to work."
— Clancy Martin, New York Times Book Review
