'“Glorious fiction.” —Publishers Weekly (starred and boxed review)   “Charged with the drama of passion, unrecognized genius, madness, and early death.” —Newsday   “Richly conveys both the joy and the sorrow of the Schumanns’ extraordinary love story.” —Los Angeles Times   “Brings these fascinating geniuses to vivid life.” —The Wall Street Journal   “Strikingly original . . . Landis tells us that the Schumanns’ marriage was vivid, full of humor, vitality, and a great hunger for music . . . Landis has seamlessly interwoven his text with ideas (about language and music, genius, imagination, and the nature of human devotion) that are very much his own . . . It is almost as if Landis himself were conducting a score, with the two characters his human instruments.” —The New York Times Book Review'
