“Michaels’ book is based on the life of Lev Termen, the Russian-born inventor of the Theremin, the most ethereal of musical instruments... He succeeds at one of the hardest things a writer can do: he makes music seem to sing from the pages of a novel.”

“A haunting tale of loss and reconciliation. . . . The novel’s three timelines are deftly woven together, illustrating the ways life takes on meaning even through objects and places.

Subtle and thought-provoking, Bumperhead is a fascinating read.
