About the Author
Praise For Veronica…
“Black and white magic, time travel, the choicer arcane of Tibetan Buddhism, and a titanic struggle to the death at the top of the Empire State Building…Satisfying as the storytelling is, though, the deeper pleasures here stem from the author’s imaginative and idiosyncratic scholarship, by means of which the uncanny is made to seem commonplace and the commonplace unfathomable.” —New Yorker
“The hard-boiled detective novel meets The Tibetan Book of the Dead…Veronica is a dramatic literary achievement unlike anything else in contemporary American fiction.” —Edward Hirsch
“Hip, sexy…superbly lyrical…a novel in which anything can happen.”—New York Times Book Review
