"The word "collage" implies something static and finally fixed, but the beauty of "Reservoir 13" is in fact rhythmic, musical, ceaselessly contrapuntal . . . A remarkable achievement and a] subtle unravelling of what we think of as the conventional project of the novel." --James Wood, The New Yorker
