'A quizzical pleasure... This civilized conundrum is set a anonymous guy captured in a undying struggle in an nameless kingdom who manages to outlive in a greenhouse, the place he's so much safe in addition to so much exposed... An antiseptic little guy, a cartographer via career, a horticulturist by means of avocation, he spends a primary evening in an deserted, mucky greenhouse and is especially satisfied to be authorised to stick on there, tending his 283 plants... in spite of the fact that he lives within the worry that each day can be his last...' Kirkus Review
'A parable of human soreness raised to an existential level.' Time
'A haunting allegory that has inspired my writing.' Diane Johnson (Lulu in Marrakech, Le Divorce)
