Readers for whom the name Erwin Schrodinger conjures up only a vague image of a cat will find this absorbing novel, based on his wartime years in Dublin, a revelation.
A surprisingly insightful novel, beautifully written
This is a novel of many layers, all of them startlingly evocative. It's about war, science, love - or the lack of it - big ideas and small kindness. It's breathtaking.
An atmospheric psychodrama... This evocative novel is distinguished by an undercurrent of gnawing doubt, and potent images abound.
This book is a brilliantly executed exercise in mood, which conveys the vulnerability, confusion and even the surreality of Schrodinger's refugee existence
