«This incredible novel about a young man's odyssey through the sexual underground of Weimar Germany is either a comic tragedy or a tragic comedy, and it is Aris Fioretos' great achievement to keep you guessing past the last page. The Truth about Sascha Knisch is worldly, audacious, haunting in its candour and unremittingly disturbing in its prescience. Fioretos is without a doubt one of Europe's most gifted writers»

«In this noir-ish novel of 1928 Berlin, Aris Fioretos serves up an intoxicating brew distilled of equal parts murder mystery, sexological rumination, and historical farce»

«Fioretos has many similarities to Vladimir Nabokov... His prose style is playful, attentive and deft... By the end of this novel, the truth about Sascha Knisch may remain uncertain, but the formidable qualities of his creator have been well established»

Times Literary Supplement

«A stylish, intelligent and eerily entertaining novel»

Independent on Sunday

«A masterpiece»
