Summary

Summary

As a graduate student in upstate New York, Nathaniel Mason is drawn into a tangle of relationships with people who seem to hover just beyond his grasp. There's Theresa, alluring but elusive, and Jamie, who is fickle if not wholly unavailable. But Jerome Coolberg is the most mysterious and compelling. Not only cryptic about himself, he seems also to have appropriated parts of Nathaniel's past that Nathaniel cannot remember having told him about. In this extraordinary novel of mischief and menace, we see a young man's very self vanishing before his eyes.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Gloriously done…It’s like watching fire slowly travel up a curtain, waiting for the moment the whole cloth will be engulfed.”  New York Times
“Shrewd and mischievous.”  Boston Globe
“With a prose style lyrical, accessible and warmly humorous, Charles Baxter has been quietly building a reputation as one of America’s favorite literary authors…His newest novel teems with the same good-natured empathy and wry humor that imbues his earlier works…It surely will delight.”  St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“This is a dandy psychological thriller in which proliferating mirrors will make your head spin. Baxter has given us the writers version of that famous M. C. Escher print in which one hand is drawing the other.” Minneapolis Star Tribune
