This novel - novella, almost - of urban perambulation recalls Teju Cole's Open City, but it's better than that rather strained exercise. This narrator's aesthetic sense is of a quite different order! The translation is exemplary, and definitely English I'd say, despite the usual envision, toward for towards, alcohol stove for spirit stove. Where now? A little ramble with Robert Walser?
