Pressestimmen"Wayne Koestenbaum, a writer of mature and accountable linguistic genius, has taken up the fabulist form and mastered it absolutely, giving us in the narrator's fire-eating, dotted-rhythm negotiation with the mesmerizing eponymous heroine." - James McCourt "Brilliantly imagined, bitterly funny, and emotionally overwhelming, Moira Orfei in Aigues-Mortes is a mordant, exquisite ode to 'the authentic and paralyzing distance between us.' A deep aesthetic and intellectual pleasure." - David Shields"
