An eighteenth-century prince devotes his entire wealth and the energy of his subjects to the creation of Rreinnstadt, a fantastic city that exists only on paper and in the minds of its creators. Among Rreinnstadt's fictional inhabitants is Pfitz, a count's loyal servant who mysteriously disappears one night from a tavern. Andrew Crumey's exploration of the rich territory between reality and fantasy reveals a genuine affection for character and the terrain of the human heart.

The New York Times Book Review - Andrew Miller

The author 'develops his story with admirable rigor, seizing on both the comic and the philosophical potential of a world in which the actual and the imagined have become fatally blurred.'
