The Review of Contemporary Fiction said of this collection, "Comprised of nine philofictional parables about the mysterious, as well as two neo-surrealist manifestos that form a fore-and afterword, and seven midnight-eerie Max Ernstian illustrations by Thomas Wiloch, this collection marks (given our large address on this century's block) an honestly original early modernist literary moment, proudly out of step with the late millennium. Given Breton's haunting of these pages, there's something European in the pared lyrical prose, like taking an avant-garde fiction off a bookstore shelf in Paris seventy years ago, and something enchanting in the sudden turns in narrative direction and perspective, a literary Japanese garden of surprises around every clause.
