The Rowing Lesson by Anne Landsman

"...Nothing about this curriculum vitae conveys the visceral appeal of Anne Landsman's second novel, The Rowing Lesson, a book that puts readers as deep into the man as if he had been opened up on the table before us...Landsman's shifting pronouns are what give this book its febrile and uncanny life, in which the barriers between self and other appear at moments to dissolve..." - Michael Gorra, The New York Times
