Beautiful, enriching and depleting, 30 Sep 2013
I finished this book a few weeks ago but it still seems to haunt me. Quick to read but dense with brutality and tenderness and laced with dark, dark humour it burrows deep into your soul only to resurface when you least expect it. Some may be put off by the style, but within a few pages it seems as natural as the thoughts in your head. It might not be for everyone, but for those that are prepared to invest themselves in it, this book will reward them again and again.
