Mattias' language is poetic and rich, conveying his depression in a matter of fact way that evokes understanding without drawing pity . . . This is a lovely, delicately written novel whose power lies in the balance between Mattias' awakening, and his acceptance that there are many kinds of glory, and many different ways to create meaning and leave footprints."
