“[Goldman’s] swashbuckling fable is nutball funny . . . A ‘classic’ medieval melodrama that sounds like all the Saturday serials you ever saw, feverishly reworked by the Marx Brothers.” — Newsweek
“One of the funniest, most original, and deeply moving novels I have read in a long time.” — Los Angeles Times
