"The Infatuations plays off Marias's enchantingly sinuous sentences. They suck you in and lull you along with their rhythm, which gives the unusual and palpable awareness of how masterfully Marias has made time itself--the gramatical tense of language, the imaginary time in the novel, the real time in our own lives--his peculiar object of investigation. The prose of The Infatuations is as casual as spoken language yet paradoxically feels honed to within an inch of its life" (Eric Banks).
