'A quizzical pleasure... This civilized conundrum is ready a anonymous guy captured in a undying struggle in an nameless state who manages to outlive in a greenhouse, the place he's so much secure in addition to so much exposed... An antiseptic little guy, a cartographer via occupation, a horticulturist through avocation, he spends a primary evening in an deserted, mucky greenhouse and is especially satisfied to be accepted to stick on there, tending his 283 plants... even if he lives within the worry that each day should be his last...' Kirkus Review
'A parable of human discomfort raised to an existential level.' Time
'A haunting allegory that has stimulated my writing.' Diane Johnson (Lulu in Marrakech, Le Divorce)
