  • "The narrator of this novel is a 30th century BC clay pot which is being appraised by a woman art expert in England. The woman thinks it is a fake, which annoys the pot. It revenges itself by revealing the woman's lurid private life, in the process giving its unflattering opinion of humanity in general. By the author of The Thought Gang."
  • "The Collector Collector takes a conventional boy-meets-girl story and turns it into a brilliant comic romp. The hero of Tibor Fischer's tale is an antique bowl that comes into the possession of a lovelorn, young London art appraiser named Rosa. Rosa's bowl is no ordinary piece of clay, however: it is a ceramic sage, an urn of uncommon erudition that has witnessed all of history's major convulsions--revolutions, famines, massacres, wars--and has survived more than four hundred breakages and three thousand thefts."
