A City Lights / Italian Voices Book
"Elaborately imagined...mini-catalog of great artists' dreams and the author's interpretation of the last three days in the life of Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa. Tabucchi's rich language and his magical-realist charm tinge the volume with a visionary glow." —Publishers Weekly
"A lovely little book that keeps ringing in your head long after you've finished it." —Kirkus Reviews
"There is in Tabucchi's stories the touch of the true magician, who astonishes us by never trying too hard for his subtle, elusive and remarkable effects." —The San Francisco Examiner
"Elegant, cosmopolitan, inventive, and disquieting; his writing is, paradoxically, sensuous and economical." —The Boston Review
