About The Book
With a delightful combination of the ridiculous and the sublime, Jonke
explores surreal dimensions of space and sound, always anchoring his
flights of fancy in accessible imagery. More than any other author,
Jonke, a pianist turned writer, avails himself of compositional
techniques from classical music. Different characters sound their own
themes in cleverly orchestrated conversations. Opening observations are
restated at the end by another character instead of in another key. Not
surprisingly, the first-person narrator is a composer, a young man who
is all the more likable for his difficulties: his missing girlfriend
and his withdrawal symptoms. The title is taken from a collection of
studies by Carl Czerny; the content is a literary tour de force.
