The Absolution of Roberto Acestes Laing front cover by Nicholas RombesThe Absolution of Roberto Acestes Laing

"Like the best of Borges (Borges, another film scholar and curator of secret histories), this novel has the erudite and exegetic tone that suggests answers and solutions, while understanding that riddles don’t resonate because of their answers, but because of what they ask."
Los Angeles Review of Books
