This review is from: Mr Palomar (Vintage Classics) (Paperback)
Mr Palomar is a lovely man. His internal monologue is a warming read. I read this book at uni 11 years ago. It still sits on my bookshelf today - a book I revisit from time to time. The complexities of walking past a topless woman - should he look, will he seem that he is ogling, if he doesn't look will she feel offended that she isn't worth looking at, these are all things Mr Palomar considers in the part of the book I remember most vividly "The Naked Bosom"
The thing I never quite reasoned out was how the number three plays a role through the book. Three parts, with three subparts each made of three short stories. Even still it makes it great for dipping in and out of.
