“Putting a hand-tinted postcard of the Shanghai Gas Co. next to one of the Pool of Bethesda in Jerusalem creates a certain frisson. Places far removed in space and time suddenly form an unexpected relationship and a story begins.”

“At once sweeping and intricate, gorgeous and austere.” — Gregory O’Brien

“Original, readable, charming and a little puzzling (in the best way).” — Murray Edmond
