Beautiful Ruins is the sort of book that others might describe as “sprawling,” “epic” or a “tour de force,” and I suppose that’s all true, but the first thing that comes to my mind is grand.

"Beautiful Ruins" delivers both outcomes at once, in a mix of satire and love story rich with "the sort of funny that makes you sad, too." Also happy.

His balanced mixture of pathos and comedy stirs the heart and amuses as it also rescues us from the all too human pain that is the motor of this complex and ever-evolving novel.
