"A loose string of events that shows little evidence of much emotional investment, on Jungk's part, in his characters, providing the reader scant chance to warm up to his oddly named hero. The result: a listless, cold-eyed, quixotic romance that seems to suffer in translation."
German-American novelist (The Perfect American
, p. 244) and biographer (Franz Werfel
, 1990) Jungk offers a disjointed tale about a mathematician by the name of Tigor, who, in troubled midlife, drifts on a series of fruitless, ill-connected adventures.
