André Aciman has been hailed as ´´the most exciting new fiction writer of the 21st century´´ (New York magazine), a ´´brilliant chronicler of the disconnect...between who we are and who we wish we might have been´´ (Wall Street Journal), and a writer of ´´fiction at its most supremely interesting´´ (Colm Tóibín).
