Product description

Review

An exploration of the mind and of literary creation, it is a book of intricate construction and vast intellectual scope....I found myself marveling at Murnane's intellectual power and originality, acknowledging respect for an artist so devoted to the precise execution of a demanding aesthetic.--James McNamara, The New York Times

An extraordinary and consistently compelling read from beginning to end.--Midwest Book Review

Murnane is a master of breathing life into fiction, and his compilation of ideas on the subject holds immense value because those ideas are often so idiosyncratic and contrarian.--Publishers Weekly

It compels the reader to question the relationship between fiction and reality, the visible and invisible world, probing the rapport between the author-as-narrator and the reader-as-partner in literary discourse.--Eugene Bacon, World Literature Today

A genius...on the level of Beckett. --Teju Cole, author of Open City

[Murnane's] emotional conviction . . . is so intense, the somber lyricism so moving, the intelligence behind the chiseled sentences so undeniable, that we suspend all disbelief. -J. M. Coetzee, The New York Review of Books

Murnane is a writer of such precision and irony that one hesitates to describe A Million Windows except to say that it will fascinate (and amuse and provoke) anyone who has driven past that house of 'two, or perhaps three, storeys', and wondered what exactly was going on inside. --Lorin Stein, The Paris Review

...contemplative, deeply humane, dedicated above all to craft.--World Literature Today

[A] beautiful and strange tale...[an] astonishing feat by a writer of profound conviction.--Michael Autrey, Booklist

Murnane is a careful stylist and a slyly comic writer with large ideas. I know it s the antipodes, but it s hard to fathom why he isn t a little better known here.--Robyn Cresswell, The Paris Review

Murnane is forever hesitant to find fixed meaning in the world, such as it exists outside of his own consciousness; he refuses to impose himself, preferring instead to be overwhelmed . . . and because of that his writing glows with an exquisite, rarified loneliness. He has honed his sincerest, most childlike obsessions and feelings into ethereal shapes. --Will Heyward, Music & Literature --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
